Cookie??!! :D

::LOL:: its ok.. i did some research and found a link to it..Its nice. I'm enjoying it. its not exactly what i've come to recognize as snowplough, but with a high nosed fourty decked in black behind it, it has that sorta Mad Max air about it ::lol:;..
it would be nice if someone did an american style plough as well as that giant UP snow blower they use up in Donner pass :)

Theres one draaweback to the plough. it doesnt work with most american engines on most american rails. It needs different couplers. I'm not saavy enough to know how to do that yet. Also americans use three different types of ploughs depending on the snowfall, and this one only approximates the littlest. The other two types are the spreader plow which has adjustable wings for clearing wide areas of track ( up to eighteen feet ) and for snow up to six foot deep. After the snow reaches six foot, they call in the rotary plough , which is a huge square maw on it that sucks in the snow and tosses it a few hundred feet to the side..

well we dont get much snow in GB
as far as couplings go yup there is a difference that i have not got too yet
the hst is different than a shunter

so that means that even in GB theres a difference between couplers.. Man that could get annoying,.. And you guys get plenty of snow there, just not the rediculously extreme snow we get in some of our mountainous areas like the sierras where the warm pacific air gets uplifted and drops straight on top of donner pass ::lol:;..
