From Sandra F Pritchard, Roadside Summit, The Human Landscape, Summit Historical Society Publications, 1992, page 120.

You were expecting a photo of a train?  The caption says it all.

Great find! Thanks for posting this. Yeah, I actually was expecting  something on rails. Proves the old southern adage, that "You just don't never know."

Did they rely on horn signals?

Can anyone identify the builder and builders dates of the various pieces of motive power in this plow train lineup?

Looks like the 2nd and 3rd are Model A Ford sedans, maybe 1930-31's. The flashy looking roadster in the front is unknown (I'm certain that Barrett-Jackson would love to auction it today!), as-is the 4th car.
