Looks like a snow/debris clearing locomotive.

It's actually a car, not a locomotive. It is pushed by a locomotive. How inefficient would it be to have a locomotive just for this purpose.

Fun to see on video but I doubt you'd like it if you had to ride the thing. Hitting a snow drift like that is like running into a wall. The guys on that plow have to wear harnesses like racing car drivers.

That's really interesting. You'd think that since the train is so heavy and the snow so soft that the impact would be very cushioned, but I guess not so much. Still would be a very interesting job.
