I havent posted anything for ages, having a few medical problems distracting me (nothing seriouse i add)
I recently purchased a cheep (relatively) Train line wagon with the though of transforming it into a rotory snow plough. as you do on a warm sunney day in the middle of summer.
I have removed all the Plastic couplings and steam pipes from the on end and sized up an old computer Fan for the rotory bit.. I may put a batteru in to power it rarther than track power i am thinking.

I may have found a fan with more blades and a smaller boss will find it at the weekend.

I am pleased to say that all 6 points are wired up and working off the hand controller. There was a slight hyaitus when first powering up and point 1 didnt respond, but then i found i had forgotten to connec tthe wires , such is life. More balast to cover the wirs to follow shortly.
