Including systems with man or horse power, and tracks or guides made of stone or wood, the history of rail transport dates back as far as the ancient Greeks.
Wagonways were relatively common in Europe (typically in mining) from about 1500 through 1800. Mechanised rail transport systems first appeared in England in the 1820s. These systems, which made use of the steam locomotive, were critical to the Industrial Revolution and to the development of export economies across the world. They have remained the primary form of land transport ever since for most of the world. Source: Wikipedia
According to the youtuber who caught this:
Railfanning Post Blizzard of 2015 Storm #3.
Canadian National Railway locomotive 2304 (ES44DC) plows through huge snow drifts and gives me a big ass snow shower as it leads the daily CN manifest train 406 West (Moncton, NB to Saint John, NB) at Salisbury, New Brunswick.
Iโm not sure how the train crew can even see with all that snow on the locomotiveโs nose!
Southern New Brunswick was hit with three major blizzards in less than a week, and there is more snow in the forecast.
