Interesting footage of Elizabeth as it once was at 0:30, and track pans (somewhere) in action at 7:00.

I didn't recognize Elizabeth, but it must be the shot of the CNJ Philadelphia train under the Pennsy main. Note the little Pennsy engine has a Belpaire firebox.

I really like the rotary snow plow. Although I highly doubt it, I wouldn't be wholly surprised if it were more effective at plowing all that snow than some of the more modern plows.
