I was hoping to see some live steam in the yards at Chama, New Mexico, as I have in years past. But the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic RR didn't run last year http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumbres...cenic_Railroad, because a trestle burned. The yards were deserted as I walked around them. But the town expects the railroad to open this year, despite heavy snows in the canyons.
Two steam-powered rotary snowplows sit on the tracks. There is a link at the bottom of this article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotary_snowplow listing existing steam rotaries. This implies that one of these two may have been built in 1889, but it is not clear.
I have not found any information on what the steam engines inside looked like, or how they are aligned relative to the shaft of the plow.
