Snow Plow Accessory designed for Brio/Thomas style wooden trains.
This is designed to look more like the plow on the "Adventures of Thomas" train than a real snow plow. The tilted-up bottom edge of the blade is required to prevent it from getting stuck when the toy train goes down a slope.
Though I've found that this will stay connected to many trains without assistance, I have left enough room inside of the magnet cavity to glue in a small ceramic magnet like the ones available from Cherry Tree Toys.

Print, install magnet, enjoy.
I've included a manually-generated support block that works well for me and breaks off very cleanly. I've included STL files both with and without it, for those who wish to let their slicing software build support (or even try without).
