A Snow Plow at Avondale
The Newfoundland Railway is long gone but scattered along the old track bed, communities still strive to conserve derelict railway stations, railcars, and locomotives. This veteran snowplow from the 1950s can be seen at the Avondale Station. The plow is unpowered and would be pushed through the snow by the locomotive.
