It was Christmas in July at the Cog! We received the first pictures of our new snow blower in the pre-assembly phase at the Zaugg facility in Eggiwil, Switzerland. This new piece of equipment will allow us to cut through snow drifts up to 14’ tall and clear a path for our trains to the summit.
Track crews continued working their way down the mountain after finishing installing the first siding at Windy Point. Crews are now working down the Big Hill, our longest, steepest, narrowest portion of track. While it poses challenges, our crews are prepared!
