Thanks for posting! So this is the plow on the right in the Boston Engine Terminal pictures posted at the link earlier in this thread, based on the modification (extension) to the overhang of the plow blade. Looks as though they are not being maintained when you compare their material condition from the Boston Terminal pics to these. Think if I emailed Cape Cod Central they would give us the lineage of these two plows to see if these are former NH plows? They might be gone before too much longer.

Someone must know why the plows are being kept on the property (in two somewhat secure locations), if they are even operable, and perhaps what their future holds. Perhaps the CC Central would be a good starting point.  Maybe someone there has knowledge of who owned them previously.

I'm thinking these were originally Russell plows with box cupolas but had the slanted front added later in life, possibly by Penn Central.  All the pictures I've seen of New Haven, New York Central and Pennsylvania plows had box cupolas with flat fronts.

This snowplow and it's 2744 mate are apparently of CN heritage.  These pics were shot at South Yarmouth this morning and shows CN 553(8?)5 in raised characters under thick layers of faded and peeling paint.  Additionally, it is stenciled with a 1930 build date.  There were no readily visible plates or tags identifying a builder.

And the last photo illustrates what a rogue snowplow consuming a hopper would look like. CN snowplow number.JPG CN snowplow date.JPG CN snowplow hopper.JPG

They seriously need to invest in a sandblaster.

This isn't the plow that used to be at Edaville, is it?
