Rowmow MFG is the nation's foremost manufacturer of right-of-way (ROW) MOWing machines for two-foot gauge railroads. Headquartered in Waterford, Maine, it has an annual budget of thousands (of Yen) and is privately held.

ROWMOW Mfg. also carries 2' gauge line MOW jib cranes, track carts, tampers, as well as custom built-to-order transport equipment for the discriminating narrow gauge rail baron.  Worldwide distribution is available upon request;)

ROWMOW 1 Mfg. has also developed its exclusive "KD" line of comfortable, functional seating for two foot gauge maintenance equipment.  Very popular with at least one member of the museum.

Jock,
  all kidding aside, when I created the mower car, I named it ROWMOW 1. It was then suggested I put a builders plate on it (they were half kidding). So I did. The mower car was built by the fictitious company, ROWMOW 1 MFG., Inc. And it has snowballed from there. All in good fun.

Neither rain nor ice or snow, will keep us from wanting to go,
to the museum for a day, no we wouldn't have it any other way.

Brendan had gotten the Kubota out so he could relocate his trailer.
Once he had the trailer where he wanted, he started playing. (could not figure out how to rhyme that)

 Brendan, The pictures of Carlton/Trout Brook location are just great.  The timber looks like some could be sold as saw timber.  Next winter would be a great time to start.     Fred L. Kuhns

If we had our own sawmill, (hint hint), we could start making boards and beams for the carbarn.  Do we have a design finalized yet?   Blueprints, etc.  ??????
