Philadelphia & Western

 P&W snow plow No. 10 built by Wason in 1915 is shown. This shear plow, which pushes snow only to the right side of the track, was the last operating snowplow on any U.S. light rail system. It was acquired from SEPTA by Rockhill Trolley Museum in central Pennsylvania in 1988 and is in operating condition. The plow spent its entire working life on the P&W system under three owners -- P&W, PSTC Red Arrow Lines and SEPTA.
