Winter’s battles

During a crew change at Sharon Springs, Kansas, Union Pacific’s rotary snowplow No. 900082 gets serviced and cleaned off of accumulated snow and ice. Trains have been stranded here for several days, and this plow run east from Denver on January 1, 2007 is to open up the Kansas Pacific line to Salina. High winds and 32 inches of snow buried the town during the December 29-30 storm.
