I knew I wasn't imagining it! These ploughs (or similar ones) were mounted directly to locos in the 1980s:

I seem to remember Traction magazine had a feature in the early to mid-2000s on snow-clearing on the WHL in the early 1980s, and had a photo of a class 20 carrying one of these ploughs - possibly the one in the photo above. I wonder how they were fitted to the loco and whether the Hattons Beilhack can be adapted.

Or even use it on a depot layout as a gate guardian as at York http://www.rmweb.co....39231_thumb.jpg
