Snow blower near Forsinard

Sèideadair sneachda dìreach air taobh a-muigh An Fhorsain Àrd.

Tha Vallance na leabhar 'Highland Railway' a' toirt iomradh orra mar a leanas:

"North of Inverness, on the borders of Sutherland and Caithness, a special type of fencing, known as a 'blower', the invention of a Lancashire man named Howie, was tried with some success. Close­boarded fences, very similar to long wooden tables, were erected on both sides of the track, much closer to the rails than the ordinary snow fences. The inner edges of the blowers almost touched the ground, but the outer edges were raised some eight to ten feet. These artificial troughs deflected the wind currents away from the railway, causing the snow to be swept up and deposited on the far side, out of harm's way"
