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!

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?

Monson Railroad / Monson Junction Station for sale???
« on: January 07, 2021, 10:02:26 AM »
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.

General Discussion / Maine Two Foot Equipment Diagrams/drawings on Ebay?
« on: October 16, 2020, 09:24:24 AM »
I was looking for blueprints of Monson #4 when I stumbled upon a holy grail of Maine Narrow Gauge equipment diagrams/drawings today. Is anyone interested in having these? Not that I own them. The name of the equipment is within the link.

And who can forget WWFRy. #9:

These are most of the diagrams/drawings, the guy is selling a lot of random antiques. How even has these documents is beyond me. Anyways enjoy y'all

Massachusetts' Two Footers / Edaville Whitcomb #5
« on: September 18, 2020, 11:42:05 AM »
Does anyone, by any chance, know what kind of Whitcomb Edaville #5 is? Better yet, does anyone have blueprints of the locomotive model?

Massachusetts' Two Footers / mystery baggage car at Edaville
« on: October 18, 2019, 12:11:17 PM »
I've only been to Edaville 2 times. During those two times, I recall a baggage car decked out with Christmas treats and whatnot. I don't recall any of the Maine two footers having an if any, baggage car, beside the Edaville, considering these screenshots I took from a video filmed in 2015.

Video link:
go to  11:46 in there

location on google maps:,-70.7708233,213m/data=!3m1!1e3

I have seen it when I have been there but never had much knowledge on it and unfortunately haven't gotten any pictures or photos, considering it has no signs of lettering or numbers, just the standard Edaville paint scheme. Anyone happen to know what two-footer it is from, what number it or if Edaville RR just built the car from scratch.

I am relatively new here, let alone this is my first post. But I have heard that you guys are looking for 60 lb rail and ties and I went looking around on the web for anything that might help. I found some useful stuff:

you'll need to scroll down a bit


I also wnated to take the opportunitty to ask if you guys are doing a southern extesion, because the old roadbed is still clear across from the street.
