MOW Maintenance of Way Locomotive

2 1/2" scale MOW powered flatcar

MOW Maintenance of Way Locomotive

Many narrow gauge railroads were marginal operations at best. Since new Maintenance of Way equipment was normally out of the question financially, ingenuity and available scrap often dictated the nature and design of support equipment. One popular concept was the adaptation of truck parts to power rail equipment (see Yukon & White Pass).

RMI now offers a 2 1/2" scale MOW powered flatcar to its expanding fleet of 3-foot narrow gauge equipment. Featuring our high quality all steel construction, comfortably arranged seating and controls this is a truly unique piece of rolling stock. Offered as a 2-motored electric or a gas / hydraulic, this is one rugged, powerful workhorse.
