    Well, thats why it has a plow! right?

    <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Ru-x_8zFwg" target="_blank">

    Well, some snow managed to slip into the layout room through a small opening between the door and the wall. I decided to put the Plows on my Genesis GP15 to work and clear the main.


    Enjoy!

    Heard on the news you were getting plenty of snow. Hope all of your engines have pilot plows! :D

    Nice video, but I would never consider running through snow even with a plow. I know how my other electronics respond to moisture. Contrary to popular opinion, BlackBerries can't do everything, they neither swim nor float. Even if the unit is not DCC, a warm running motor is going to melt snow and that could never be good. Any way, thanks for the video and doing what most of us would never even consider attempting.

    Can't help but notice that you need some scale sanders:mbiggrin:

    And great choice of road!

    But where does one find some scale sand?

    Even as it is, that's going the extra mile for realism! Hope the plywood doesn't warp.

    I doubt the electronics got wet, if it was an older athearn I would be concerned about the trucks rusting. But not the genesis.

    I always considered dumping a bunch of powder on my layout and having a day of just running plow trains. Ah... but the clean up...

    if the snow can get in then the rain will be able to as well. I would suggest you find a way to seal that opening so that your hard earned money and work does not get ruined
    pretty cool video, thanks
