NAUG X-105 Russell Snow Plow

Our former Green Mountain Railway Corp. snow plow was built in 1936 by Russell Snow Plow Co. of Ridgeway, Pennsylvania as Maine Central 70. Eventually sold to GMRC in 1981, it was acquired in 1996 (traded for B&M RDC-1 6154), and moved to the Naugatuck Railroad in Sept. 1996. The wings of the plow are controlled pneumatically, and help push cleared snow away from the tracks. It has already proven to be a useful tool for battling heavy winter snow in the Naugatuck Valley, helping us keep our main line clear during severe weather.
