Remarks & Notes 
Well the drifts near Alpha are getting so deep the railroad decided to use a contractor to dig them out instead of the plows. Here 948 blows thru Alpha on their way west towards Jackson. I call this "cheating" when the railroads clean the best drifts out instead of using old faithful way of a snow plow. Alpha is on the far west end of the Jackson Sub and only 4 miles from the end of the line at Jackson.
