First time here?

Welcome to the new style Maine On2 FAQ!

We’re glad you have found us and hope that you enjoy the content and blog style presentation.

This site is an online home for information about modeling the two-foot gauge common carrier railroads of Maine (collectively known as The Maine Two Footers) in US O scale (1:48 scale or quarter inch to the foot).

We intend to provide information on available equipment, structures and other components to model these interesting railroads, with examples of models/layouts that have been built and discussions between experienced modelers about particular topics.

We also intend to provide links to sources of prototype information, track standards and best practices, and more, as time permits.

We have numerous categories in the column on the right of the page, and you can use these to navigate around the blog to particular topics and earlier posts. In addition, our pages “What’s here?” and “What’s new?” provide lists of currently available pages and posts with clickable links to open each page or topic on another page/screen in another browser window.

“What’s here?” is an all time listing of all the currently available pages and posts in reverse date order of first publication (ie latest is top of the list).

“What’s new?” provides a short list of recently published new topics and recently updated existing topics by date, typically over the last quarter or so.

Be sure to keep current as there will be regular updates and additions: you can follow our blog via email or via RSS.

Enjoy your visit!

Trevor, Matt & Terry

  1. Does anyone here know where M.J. Mechling’s 6-volume books on NG track work etc.. are sold? I thought Railmaster publications or railway Engineering pubs/publishing, but I can’t find them mentioned at either. Loco112

  2. I’m not sure what I mean. I was getting it from Moe but had a hard time understanding him, that might be it, but was it ever is a 6-volume set?

    • The best advice I can give (especially if you are not sure what you mean yourself) is for you to contact Moe directly and ask him. I am not aware if Moe uses a PC or the internet. I do know that he frequently corresponds with snail mail.

      I’m not aware of Moe writing a 6 volume set, and nobody else has chimed in yet…..

  3. I have a few questions concerning your list of plans. One of the contributors named Robert Schlechter has some plans on Phillips yard. It says dwg. avail. How can I get a copy. Thank you.

    • Bob,

      We should point out that the lists of plans are titled Historic lists – to show that they have not been kept up to date. We have contacted Bob Schlechter but have yet to receive a reply.

      I believe that Bob no longer supplies plans directly, but cannot remember who now supplies them, either Underground Railway Press or Gary Kohler.

      Terry & co.
