The Sierra Nevada is hit hard by fierce Winter storms dumping up to 35 feet of snow each Winter season. Storms on the summit can be treacherous and can take even the most experienced and prepared travelers by surprise.One of the most daunting tasks for the railroad is keeping the tracks clear of snow and ice.Dispatched at any time, day or night, Flanger trains are called to duty when storms produce a depth of snow six inches or more above the rail. Flanger operations require skilled and experienced operators who know this mountainous territory well. Operations work around the clock until the storm subsides.See first hand, unprecedented footage as we climb aboard the lead unit of a Flanger train in operation, and make a flip from Truckee to Emigrant Gap and back clearing the snow for mainline rail traffic!
