Last thread hit the bump limit.

While there are many many locomotives that are known, there are those few which are classified as strange, or unique to those.

So, feel free to post images of strange locomotives, or any type of rail equipment which may be considered as "strange" to many.

Is that a double-ended snowplow?
And if so, why?

For un-plowing the snow, obviously

It's so they don't have to turn it around to change direction. Apparently it was built for use on branch lines where there was nowhere to turn the train around.

The Russians have a very serious commitment to horizontal assembly.

But then how would they get it from the front of the train to the back?

They decouple from it and then run the locomotive around it on a parallel track and come back from the other side. Even a small single-track branch line will generally have passing sidings that they can use for this.

>Acting as if branchlines mean anything.
The real reason is that nobody uses turn tables anymore, you can't put wyes everywhere, and a snow plow is too heavy to have its own internal turn table like other MoW equipment.

That was my initial thought too but I looked the thing up and what I found said that it was intended for branch line use.

My initial guess was that it was intended for clearing yards but that doesn't seem to be the case.

Also, on the subject of wyes, it occurs to me that you couldn't use them at all in this situation, since the train would have to back up through an unplowed part, unless you put a plow on the back end of the train too. (Which actually doesn't seem like the worst idea, come to think of it, just put a single-sided plow on both ends of a switcher and you could clear a yard with minimal hassle.)

You don't plow yards. There are cars in them and they're moving often enough.
