It is a big snow year on Donner and on Friday the 25th, the Union Pacific called out the rotary set to clear the tracks of up to 20 feet of snow in some areas.  A flanger had been covered by a slide and it was in need of rescue also.  
 
The Interstate was closed to traffic and I did not have chains so this is as deep as the snow was at Gold Run.  
Enjoy!

Awesome set of shots! It's the only thing about snow I like... seeing the snow fleet get rid of it!
