    Thats a cool pic. I don't see why they couldn't. They do put plows and blowers on some trains.

    YEs I have in person and have rode on one, I used to clean a trolly car line platforms as a Sub back about 8 years ago and they had a snow car for when the storm dumped so fast. the trolly or train car had a solid V plow in the front with a wing to push teh show away from the tracks. It was kool becuase the train line was 1950's train cars and so was the snow car. Only used when there was so much there was no way a regular car could push it out of the way without derailing or becoming damaged
