Double shifed snow shoveller - was it self propelled?
i do not believe so, Geezer. it would be too light. Hopefully someone with knowledge will enlighten us as to it's abilities and it's pros & cons.
Beautiful photo!I like it!
Very interesting Stacy, thank you adding this photo to the group(s) I do not ever believe that I ever saw a double sided plow before, till now...
Hi Stacy, Like Adam said, I haven't seen a double ended snow plough before either!! Thank you for sharing!
While I can see that in Canada, with long stretches of single track, it would avoid the need to turn it, I suspect it's usefulness would be somewhat limited in all but the shallowest of snow. The normal way in England would be to have two single units, each half the size of this, with a number of locomotives sandwiched in between. Then there is a way for the assemblage to retreat back where it came from without getting stuck!
Thank~you ,Adam. i DO enjoy your group - North American Railroader :)
Best wishes, Peter. Thank~you for your insight - i agree completely. It appears that it doubled as the caboose too. That would have been an 'experience' in the (backwards) pushing snow direction. i patiently await the day when someone experienced with these unique units shall enlighten us. The only other one i have ever seen was an H.O. model ;).

What for a funny plow Stacy, I never saw this kind before.
Many greetings to you, Helge
Thanks, Helge. Yes, curious.
Friendly greetings in return :)
Is dit 'n trein, is dit 'n boot?
Deontjie :) This is a double~ended snowplough - to be pushed in front of the train engine.
Thank~you for your interest. Have a swell day.
