Meadville Museum Gets Lackawanna Snow Plow

May 21, 2018

A former Delaware, Lackawanna & Western 1945 Russell snowplow has been donated to the French Creek Valley Railroad Historical Society in Meadville, Pennsylvania.

The relic was donated by an economic development agency in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.

The plow, which was wide enough to cover two tracks, was owned by Growth Resources of Wellsboro, which owns part of a former Conrail route between Corning, New York, and Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

The plow was being sent to Meadville on a flatcar that will arrive in Meadville on tracks of The Western New York & Pennsylvania.

The WNYP plans to unload the plow and deliver it to the museum on its own wheels.
