Pat Connors has posted a video on YouTube of the BSOR clearing their line after the November snowstorm.

Between November 13 and 20th, 2014 over 79.5 inches of snow fell on Hamburg, NY. During that time most major roads were closed. Many railroads were unable to move traffic. It took the BSOR 4 days for crew members to be safely able to reach the enginehouse. After a day of digging the locomotive out of the enginehouse, the Jordan Spreader finally was able to reopen the line. See this ex D&H spreader plowing north on the old Erie BS&W branch from Hamburg to BC Junction. By the time the plow was mobilized, the snow had become extremely wet and heavy. Enjoy the Alco RS-11 pushing it's D&H companion, spreader #35053. Enjoy!
