Remarks & Notes 
A lonely job. Pushing snow to clear the rails a CN M.O.W. rides in somewhat comfort in the Knox Kershaw 940 Snow Fighter. It's quite the piece of equipment sporting a 50K lb. working weight, special cold weather heaters, and specially designed wings, plows, and brooms built specifically for snow fighting in the harshest environments. The wings push snow 16 feet from the track center, and the snow switch cleaner can blow snow over 30 feet. All this stuff came in handy after a recent snowfall brought another foot of the white stuff to northern Minnesota.

From a "hint" of "Bee" (NKP 765), colorful "Bees" (KCS), "Bees" w/ attitude, to "Bees" that "sting" your eyes, in their own way they have "Bee" on display! Equipment that "Buzzes" wearing Yellow & Black! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
