A pair of EMD F units growl in response to Gary Dagelman's heavy application of the throttle as plow CPR 401005 devours a 200 meter long, 4 foot high drift just outside of Putnam, Ontario. From my family to yours, please enjoy a Merry Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year. With any luck, we'll see more of this as winter 2018 bears down. Cross your fingers everyone!

  1. LOL.

    When plows run this late in Winter they make multiple passes multiple times so you get a great opportunity to chase and find another location – this chase was no exception.

    Early in the winter, they may NOT make any second passes so you’ll be hard pressed to chase and in my early January plows, you get one shot – that’s it, may be two if you are lucky, of the action, and of course if you stick around going away shots..

  2. Wouldn’t be surprised if he was shooting out of a pup tent. LOL

  3. Let’s just say it was a blast. :) Thank you Sir and see you next month unless we cross paths earlier than that :)

  4. Steve I can’t help but notice, you seem to be in the approaching “blast zone”. Did you get hit getting this shot?? ;) Merry Christmas to you and your family also!

  5. Thank you Gents. . This is one of my all time favourites. I still have a few more to go – only photographed about 30 plow movements in 2014/5 :)

  6. Wow… that’s Awesome!

  7. This is an epic shot good sir.
