Maine Two foot layout plans on Marty McGuirk’s blog

Marty McGuirk’s blog is mainly about his HO gauge Central Vermont layout, but like many blogs there are occasional diversions such as what other layouts might fit the space or his interests.

Recently, Marty has found (and published) a plan drawn up by Iain Rice from a long time ago featuring a Maine Two Foot style layout based on the proposed “Franklin and Somerset” extension to the Franklin and Megantic line. Also included is some correspondence from the time – take a look at http://centralvermontrailway.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/maine-two-foot-adventure.html

Some time ago Marty published a plan based on the WW&FR that was drawn up by Bernie Kempinski for Marty’s space. http://centralvermontrailway.blogspot.co.uk/2011/07/missed-opportunities-what-might-have.html

Enjoy if you visit, and we look forward to hearing from anyone who is tempted to build either of these layouts,

Terry & Co.

  1. I think that the “new” 16′ shelf layout would be a good alternative to the non-waterfront leg of the U shaped Iain Rice plan for an On30 Sheepscot Railroad. It is definitely a usable plan for a small layout.
