Dennis,

That is a unique piece of equipment. Since you mentioned the Roots of Motive Power collection, if you are into logging equipment I would highly recommend this organization located in Willits, CA (Northern CA).

That ballast-broom car is something I've never seen before!

I don't have any MOW equipment for my layout yet, but here's a prototype photo. It's a tunnel inspection and maintenance car, basically a tall platform on a flatcar. This belonged to the SD&A and was photographed some time in the late '70s in Jacumba, CA:



This next photo shows a snowplow/spreader/flanger belonging to the Nevada Northern RR museum in Ely, NV. BTW, there are more pics of it on my website:



And here's a Nevada Northern ballast car, also located in Ely:



Enjoy!

This is an Sn3 MOW tool car built from a Rio Grande Models D&RGW 'outfit' car kit. The derrick car is a scratch-bash made from a cast frame, scrap box derrick and steam winch, and odds 'n ends. Both cars are located at the C&R's Kleefskill facility.

Took this picture of a Russell snow plow on a trip to Nova Scotia a couple years ago.

Great photos, all. There's something fascinating about MOW equipment of all types and gauges!

Here's a small MOW train I built up in On30 to maintain my small mining railroad:


First, the motive power...whatever the superintendent can spare from revenue operations. It's usually the lowest operating loco on the ready board (no offense to the proud crew here).


A water tank car, the first necessity in the desert.


A tool and supply car.


A light-duty crane to help with lifting rails, wheelsets, etc.


A rail car borrowing from logging equipment design - the swiveling bunks enable the car to negotiate sharp curves.



A flatcar loaded with ties.


Another flat with supplies, and a pair of hungry riders.


Bringing up the rear is a lowly work caboose.
