G scale is a lot larger then  my S scale trains and it is outside, but it does a great job clearing the tracks.

WOW, that was a snow plowing train! I have always heard that steam power was the most powerful for the hp.

Looked up "G" scale trains so we could get an idea how deep the snow was.

 

Thanks for the link.

I'd love to see this guys yard in the summer! The way it looks there's not much grass to cut. I guess I never realized there was so many different scales of trains. Thanks for sharing!

if I remember them all there is starting from the smallest to largest Z-N-HO-S-O-G the only ones I know what the letter stands for is HO is half of O and G is for garden somewhere I have a picture of them all side by side so you can really see the sizes. The only one I know the size of is S and it is 1/64 inch per foot

Wow! Nice layout and the plow worked great. I imagine it was a serious amount of work to set up an outdoor track like that.

That is very cool. I also liked the one with the rotary plow that popped up when this one was finished, very life like for sure.

One of the florists back in the town I grew up in, Mentor Ohio had a layout like this that he occasionally would open up to the public. As kids we absolutely loved it. After seeing this I talked to my BIL(now 68) and he said yep its still there in the same family. He's not sure if the family still has open houses.

Gotta love those model trains of any size. Thanks for posting.
