Remarks & Notes 
On January 30, 1996, after a major snowstorm, Wisconsin Central GP35 No. 4007 and a former Chicago & North Western GP7 are clearing the one-time C&NW/Fox River Valley Railroad line south of Campbellsport, Wisconsin. This line was plugged with drifts, and a past C&NW manager now with the WC decided they would plow the line with a plow extra like they used to—get a couple of locomotives and run like a bat out of hell through the snow. Here, the plow extra is flying blind through the white stuff, horn blaring almost constantly because of the limited (none) visibility and the grade crossings on the line. I guess it proves a locomotive equipped with a pilot plow run at speed can be just as effective at removing snow from the track as a wedge plow! At least it was this day…
