      SPng Pilot Plow Help

      Hey folks, 

      This may be a long shot but I am looking for plans for this pilot plow that was mounted on the Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge engines. I have searched everywhere I can think of with no luck. I am hoping someone has some NG gazettes lying around that may have some diagrams.

      Thanks for the help!

      Matt,

      I looked through all the info I have on the SPNG but with no luck.

      Quite a few pictures but no solid data, sorry.

      Good luck with your search, I'm sure you have probably checked with Vance and his site  here;  http://www.urbaneagle.com/slim/

      Good for you David,

      The railroad has a pretty amazing history and the good part is that a lot of it has been preserved and restored.

      For example;

      18 spent a good amount of time over on the Durango and Silverton as well. Here’s some public video of her running last year. Maybe the most snow at once she had ever seen....

      Thanks Matt,

      Beautiful footage of her working in the snow.  No wonder she blew a cylinder while down there.
