Union Pacific dispatched a rotary set today from Roseville, CA as the WRVTKF-25. They departed at 10am and made it to Colfax around noon. After waiting for a utility crew to remove some downed wires from the tracks about 10 miles east, they finally departed Colfax shortly before 3pm. I chased it up to Gold Run where the snow started to really come down and stick to the roads so I headed back home to lower elevations. Enjoy the photos!

I thought this was an interesting view of the steam providing a canvas for the small truck and wheels.

The blades finally get to taste some snow. It'll get its fill soon enough.
