Railways are an important mode of transport in most countries. In Romania, the railroad system is the commonly used, and it has sparked economic growth in the country. Additionally, it reduces travel time by 95 percent.
Keeping the snow off the railway in Romania is a herculean task. The mega snow blower works hard to shift the snow, but the snow appears stronger. Sometimes the snow wins.
America is known for its harsh weather conditions. The locomotives travel across the country, but it proves difficult when the weather is snowy, and temperatures are freezing.
How do the countries with the ice menace? After much deliberation, designing, and testing, the engineers found the locomotive mounted rotary snowplows as the best solution.
The giant contraptions (see image above) have massive blades that cut and drag the ice away. Watch the video below and see the gigantic machine in action.
