For a limited time, visitors to the California State Railroad Museum have a special opportunity to see a 251,000-pound rotary snowplow from the Museum’s impressive collection along with a compelling exhibit titled “Snowbound in the Sierra.” The SP MW205 (formerly known as SP 715) snowplow on display was built in 1920, converted to electric in 1958, retired by Union Pacific in 2004 and was donated to the Railroad Museum in 2008. Since then, the historic snowplow has been housed in the Shops in the Sacramento Railyards except for short-term displays at the Railroad Museum each winter. Currently on display in the Museum’s Roundhouse, the rotary snowplow and companion “Snowbound in the Sierra” exhibit will remain on public view through March 2019. Viewing the exhibit and locomotive are included in Museum admission: $12 for adults; $6 for youths ages 6-17; free for children ages 5 and under.
