As most of you know, I am also a model railroader and a Moffat fan. You probably have endured my annoying historical info every stinking time we go over Rollins Pass Road. Well, here is someone who has created a software program that lets you run near-prototypical trains over Rollins Pass:

On the third page, bottom right, you will see a snow plow train rounding a bend. Several of you have endured my stories about the plow-turning wyes at several locations on Rollins Pass. That picture is close to what it looked like when trains ran there. You may recognize the spot; there are now dispersed campsites to the left and downhill, and the wye is barely visible in the snow proceeding right.
