CP snowplow and locomotives derailed in Ruso, ND

Received the following pictures and comments via email. You would think that a railroad in North Dakota would know when to use a snow plow and when to use a snow thrower.

Nasty outcome for a CP wedge plow and the locomotives shoving it. I also heard, via other channels, that some of the crewmembers were hurt. What a mess.

You think you have problems with snow? Take a look at CP's problems in Ruso, North Dakota. Thanks Tom Dupee for the pictures.
