Plow Extra: During the Winter of 2007, strong relentless winds and a couple months of white stuff on the ground caused the ordering of a rare Plow Extra on the Goderich subdivision. During the CN years, this line was well known to host a pair of FPA units in plow service and was frequented by photographers. With Goderich and Exeter having had transferred two covered wagons of their own from Lakeland and Waterways, the ingredients were ripe for a repeat of the covered wagon plow extra!In this frame, the plow extra crew is boarding and preparing their equipment while GEXR 581, seen behind with GEXR 4046 and 3821 and 30 or so cars is backing onto the Exeter sub, clearing the main for the plow to run ahead of it to Goderich.The plow would run from Clinton to Goderich, and return to Stratford. More photos from this series to come..
