Serious Snow Plow!

Union Pacific 1433. Argo, Seattle, July 15, 1961. Four rectangular and two porthole openings along with chain link fencing, are the hallmarks of the early “Phase II” F3’s. Although General Motors Division never referred to “phases” in their catalogs, locomotive enthusiasts created the “phases” to mark the progression of models.

UP 1433 sports the annoying single blat air horn, mark of a true basic model without white-walls or power steering! Note the grab handle under the windshield, but how does one get to it? Apparently a ladder with hooks!

And the plow is definitely designed not only for serious snow removal, but also for flicking VW’s out of the way!

Railroad Stuff: UP 1433, EMD F3, 1500 hp 567B motor, built 3/1/48, sn 4638.
