    Since the WRRy is set in Wisconsin, my lokies need a way to clear the tracks come wintertime. I'm just wondering if anyone has built a pilot mounted snow plow that is removable when summer comes around. I noticed some of the brass lokies have them, such as DRG&W's C-16's and NP's Pacific's. I can't imagine that'd it'd be a difficult build since the only tricky part would be wanting it removable without changing out the whole pilot.

    One approach would be to drill two holes through the snow plow , and into the regular pilot. Solder or glue brass wires that are tolerance fit into the holes into the holes on the plow, so they could extend into the regular pilot,
