Was that loco at Boothbay for one summer?


That probably would be Edaville Whitcomb #3 you're thinking of:

An interesting little critter.

I actually don't know how many cars we actually have since we are constantly exchanging rolling stock and loco's with MNG.  Thoughts anyone?

I counted 15 pieces of WW&F-owned equipment not including MOW.  This includes future locomotive 11 and future coach 9. The number increases to 33 pieces of equipment with all the equipment that is owned by others, especially MNG. As far as including MOW equipment, from what I counted on the website would be an additional 13. The numbers may be off, anybody is free to correct me. In any case, depending on how many you end up making Bill, there should be spares with the coming and going of MNG equipment.

US Two Footers / Frisco Silver Dollar Line Derailment
« on: October 28, 2022, 07:48:03 AM »
For those who haven't heard, the Frisco Silver Dollar Line Steam Train at Silver Dollar City experienced a derailment a couple of days ago:

For those who don't know what the FSDL is, its a 2 Ft Gauge Theme Park railroad at Silver Dollar City, a theme park, in Branson, Missouri that rosters 4 O&K 0-4-0ts (one of which is displayed as a wrecked engine), 2 CKD 0-4-0ts (one of which was converted to a tender engine), 1 Davenport 4-4-2 on static display, and a Plymouth shop switcher. The CKD 0-4-0 Tender Engine, #504, was the engine involved in the derailment.

Museum Discussion / Roster of Surviving Maine 2' Gauge Equipment
« on: September 02, 2022, 11:23:37 AM »
I figured at some point this year that I would compile all the known information about the surviving equipment from the Maine 2' Footers, with some honorable mentions, into a giant roster. This roster was compiled from information from the MNGRR, SR&RL, WW&F, Boothbay Railway Village websites, videos, photos, as well as information from these forums.

Roster here:

Any suggestions are appreciated. Enjoy!

Other Narrow Gauge / New Passenger cars for EBT

So in addition to all the current ongoing work, Hamilton Manufacturing Co. will be building 4 additional passenger cars for the East Broad Top, the same company that made most of the historic-looking cars for the WP&Y. Refer to the linked article for more information.

Massachusetts' Two Footers / Edaville Open Car design
« on: November 09, 2021, 08:06:23 AM »
I found a close resemblance between the Kennebec Central's excursion cars (as seen in this old John Derr Model Railroad blueprint: and Edaville's (the covered ones like the one from ML&MW.) Is it possible that when built that they were built with the KC's design in mind?

Dave, letting the mud dry. I found a snake in the mud on the track when putting it back on and did not want to find his cousins..not a fan.
What did the snake look like? I couldn't have been poisonous unless it was a garter snake. But then I don't live in Maine so what do I know.

It's exciting to know that this is will be the first Maine two-foot steamer built from the ground up since Baldwin rolled B&SR/B&H #8 out in 1924.

Monson Railroad / Re: Monson Junction Station for sale???

It's interesting how the listing claims it's a 2-Bedroom single-family home. Was it ever a home?? I assume not. The MRR didn't do much with some of their buildings after they dismantled.

Monson Railroad / Monson Junction Station for sale???

I found this and was quite interested in it:
I'm not sure if it is true besides the fact that the structure is still standing. Closest thing to a date is that the tax year of when the property got put on the website was 2019.
