According to an article in the April 2nd Portland Daily Sun, an official with the Maine Narrow Gauge Museum stated that the right-of-way was "two plus miles".

From the photos of the old P-L I RR right of way, it seems to be mostly swamp.  Hardly a scenic ride.  It's true that Edaville was mostly a swamp (ok, a BOG), but it had lots of pine woods and some scrub oak to break up the swampy sections.  What will Gray look like?  Will there be room for a loop at the far end so they don't have to back up on the return trip?  I'm also underwhelmed by the strip mall museum site.  Good luck to all involved, but I have serious doubts about this project.

Also Edaville's original ride was along the lake for a good portion

Looking at the aerials there does not seem to be room for a loop. You will have to move to the other side of the car to enjoy the other side of the swamp.

Run arounds would be the way to go with the track set up.
