A rotary snow plow is a piece of railroad snow fighting equipment. It is characterized by the large circular set of blades on its front end that rotate as a unit to cut through the snow on the track ahead of it. The precursor to the rotary snowplow was the wedge snowplow.

1:37 "This machine is so capable of carving a path through the white stuff that the railroads don't bother using it for ordinary snowfalls." What?! Doesn't that make it very incapable?

1:45 "This beast only sees service roughly once a decade." How do you justify the cost of buying, and maintaining this machine when it barely gets used? I don't get it.
One thing he got wrong, it is not a slug, but a snail. The UP (sliver one) was built by the UP in 1958, and was built from the "rail up" and was a "kit bash" of sorts. On the old SP (black ones" used to be steam powered, and now receive power from the "snail" which is a locomotive with an engine, but no traction motors. They then have traction motors turning a worm gear, that turns the blade. The one thing they use to keep the traction motors cool -- snow -- they take buckets of snow and pack them too cool them down.

This is NOT a rotary. Instead, it's a man eating monster! This is a great video and thanks for sharing it!!!
I'm sure I've had a nightmare or two about this monster chasing me at a snail's pace! lol

Hey Discovery!!! Your opening still is a photo I took in February 1993 - I see that it's been cropped to not show my name nor was I asked permission to use it. Please take it off!

всем привет! как дела?
It's so effective they only us it once a decade. What kind of fucked up logic is that? It's either too slow, too expensive to run, or something, but not too effective to be used...
