Snow sweeper #01 of the Portland Railroad Company at St. John's Street in Portland. The sweepers mounted at both ends of the car were made of flexible rattan sticks and they brushed the snow off to the side of the track. These cars were particularly useful during light snow falls that didn't quite call for a wedge or rotary snow plow.
