The Kiwis certainly know how to clear snow in style!
The clip below shows a train charging along from Christchurch to Arthurs Pass earlier this month, with the heavy snowfall taking an absolute battering. National Rail could learn a thing or two from this — somehow I don't see "leaves on the track" causing too many delays after this!

Lol! Considering the 07:56 from Beckenham Junction gets cancelled with the slightest suggestion of frost, that's impressive!

That’s got to be the best thing I’ve seen on the net in ages! Amazing and agree with Ritchy that put’s the UK rail network to shame.

It was a nice video for snow plowing. First time I saw a train cleaning snow from track. Very nice video thanks for sharing.

"Just home from Christmas in Val d'Isere... this was the best ski holiday I have ever been on. Val is stunning, the hotel fabulous, staff sensational and skiing out of this world. We booked through Iglu. They were fantastic. Peter had great ski knowledge, offered advice and went the extra mile. " - Pamela (Dec 2015)
