Mohawk, Adirondack & Northern has begun storing tank cars again this year north of Boonville.

I followed yesterday's move and got some video:

As usual a great job and many thanks for posting. Looking at this reminds me of my railroading days in the snow, all over for now, I have seen my last snow for good most likely, virtually unheard of in South Florida. Loads of memories though and those Alco's would handle the snow better than anything else.
