I like the black/red/gray of that train. Is the Van Buren Bridge Company owned by MMA? Does MW on the side mean maintenance of way? Why do they write that when it's obvious?

It would be neat to mount a camera on the blade of the plow!

Van Buren Bridge company was owned by BAR, Iron Roads and then MM&A. However, I believe, it was sold with the rest of the line from Madawaska to the CN interchange in St. Leonard.
"MW" is a suffix used, usually to designate something as Maintenance of Way equipment. Why they write it I don't know, but its almost universal on MOW equipment everywhere.
