As of yesterday, last Monday was the only run. I guess it went ok. Looks like they used it today.

In Mr. Springirth's book about The Arcade and Attica RR book on page 108 shows a unnumbered Arcade & Attica RR snowplow(top photo) was this acquired new or second hand and who built it? As far as I can tell by looking at the photograph,it sure resembles a early Russell plow.

I don't have the book in front of me (can't carry my entire collection on a train to Conway), but if its the plow picture I'm thinking of, its the original wooden Russel plow from the Buffalo, Attica & Arcade, which was eventually rebuilt into the black and orange plow the A&A has today.
