This plow is one of thirty-six built by Canadian Pacific's Angus Shops in Montreal between 1920 and 1929. It is a 20-ton, wedge-type plow made for use on a single track. Built without a self-contained power source, one or two locomotives pushed this snowplow. Although they are seldom seen in action, snowplows are necessary to prevent the derailing of trains.
