The two TXNW SW7s were 88 and 89.  The 88 was renumbered 107 in 2006 and the 89 was assigned 117.  Both were sold to LRS Companies, Inc. in 2007.  The 107 became LRSX 107 and was leased to US Lime Co. in Marble City, OK in June 2010 (current status unknown).  The 89 was scrapped in May 2010.

Howdy Dennis,

I remember those days.  Where did you have this written down?   To the best of my memory, the two TXNW SW-7's were numbered 71 and 72.

Somewhere I have photos...

May 16, 1994 was a day C&TS operated a snowplow train up to Cumbres Pass
and beyond.  The snow that year was not quite as deep as the previous year but
deep enough to use the rotary anyway

At Chama Yard, the following were steamed up:
#497
#489
#488
#484
#463
   OY rotary plow

I think only 489 and 484 were used on the work train.
For those who chased the train, it was an unforgettable experience.
All the preparations lasted 2-3 days before OY left to clear snow.
I believe John Bush was the Operations Manager at the time.
