UP 900082, the rotary plow that UP keeps and maintains in Cheyenne, departs 36th Street on the point of the WDEDEF-31. The plow will help dig through some snow drifts on the plains to help rescue some crews that are actually trapped on their trains, stuck in the snow. Although the plow itself is powered by diesel-electric, there is still a steam-powered heat system to make sure all the equipment remains defrosted!
