ANTONIO, Colo. (CBS4)– For the first time in more than two decades, a rotary snowplow cleared the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad tracks. The rotary snowplow sliced its way way through the snowdrifts on Sunday.

The plow moved the snow to get to the top of the 10,000 foot Cumbres Pass which is on the border of Colorado and New Mexico.

The plow was put into service on Sunday in honor of the 140th anniversary of the year the railroad opened.
