Does anyone have a photo of the ice breakers used by the Milwaukee Road on Snoqualmie Pass? They were mounted on top of the last lead locomotive, especially when the train was pulling auto racks.
I used to have a 'Trains' magazine, title, I think, 'Only Two More Mountains to Cross', but I can't find it.

Any photo would help a friend who wants to model a MILW SD40-2, like they used to run there in the railroads final years in Washington State.
