Railroading’s most difficult season is winter. From late fall to spring, railroads struggle to move their heavy tonnage trains through snow, ice, sleet, wind, rain, and freezing temperatures that are hard on the equipment as well as the railroaders themselves. This TRAINS Express PDF package highlights some of the experiences that railroads face in winter. Here’s the line-up of stories from the Trains magazine archive:
