A good look at UP's Snow Bus as it makes its way west on the Moffat. A freshly painted bay window caboose is used to shuttle crews via the rails to and from trains that need a crew change in bad weather. UP 1989 (the Rio Grande Heritage Unit) and an SD9043MAC sandwich the caboose, allowing the train to easily move in either direction.
