Also the last locomotive Portland built was Bridgton and Saco #5 in 1906.  It had been 12 years since they had built any locomotives those being W&Q #2 and 3 in 1894.

Other Maine Narrow Gauge / Re: Bangor Industrial Two Footer?

Odd gauge.  Works out 47.6 cm seems like I've read about it some where but can't find where yet.  My guess is the line may have been hand or 1 horsepower originally and then add locomotion later.  18" was fairly common in the mining world.  Used extensively at Homestake mining in South Dakota.  which was originally mule driven.

I have the 1978 edition of Northern Rails.  Published buy The 470 Railroad Club.  It states that the gauge is 18 3/4"  locomotives are 3-ton Plymouth Model AL.  SN 750 purchased 1919 and SN 895 purchased 1920.  Original built with Continental 4's replaced with Chrysler 6's.  For 1978 it states the locomotives are store, but cars are hand pushed.

Ok, I'll bite.  But I live in a small Condo, so the parts would have to be small. I assume I should start with something simple.

 I'm always fascinated buy the patterns you two have made.

 I can also work through the winter, but not the summer.  It's a bit warm here in AZ for outdoor work in the summer.
