    Default Sandy River And Rangeley Lakes Railroad

    Hello,
    I have became interested in this time zone of the 2 foot gauge railroading on the SR&RLRR and I was wondering if anyone is will to make some steamers for me, Of course I would be able to do the freight and cabeese, but I am not good with steamers. Also a set back on this though is that, MSTS is set for 3 foot gauge, but that doesn't bother, it's still narrow gauge.

    I am planning on making a small portion of the Sandy River and Rangeley lakes area that also include the MEC trackage, and was wondering if someone good do some steamers for me, like the 0-4-4T and 2-4-4T models. Thanks in advance.

    Actually it isn't. The 3 foot gauge is part of Xtracks. Also in Xtracks there is "UK Narrow Gauge" which is your choice for 2 foot gauge.

    regards,

    EDIT: If you get a steamer builder, the gauge is really 2' 4.25".

    Oh alright thanks for the info. :)
    That will help with the route editing.

    Brings me back to my youth, Edaville Railroad, South Carver, MA. Vacation destination when it was too rainy to go to the beach.

    :P

    All I need to figure out is that, if the trackage from Livermore Falls, Maine to Farmington, Maine was daul guage, or standard gauge. If it's just standard gauge, then there is no point in me making the route and wasting someones time making the engines.

    The two-foot tracks didn't get south of Farmington, as things turned out. There was a considerable stretch of roadbed graded toward Waterville, and a number of bridges built, but the line was never completed. There was no dual gauge in Farmington either, and there were a minimum of standard gauge and two-foot gauge crossings. The standard gauge was a prominent feature in the Farmington area, and would be worth modeling.

    If you have access to a public library, try to borrow both volumes of Robert Jones' "Two Feet Between the Rails" through interlibrary loan. You'll find the photographs alone well worth your effort. -Phil

    Shawn, I have a diagram of a Bridgeton & Saco River steam loco, along with a SR&RL Combine car. If your still planing on making this line, I could supply them to the modeler.

    Thanks,
    But I have lost interest in the making of the route. Not sure why, but I think it's because of little free time for MSTS.
