On30 / On2 / Sn2 SCALE: Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad

Anyone that is familiar with my interests will know that I have a fondness for Maine 2-footers. While the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington Railway is my favourite (and I also have another unfinished design based on that line as well) this design is of the longest 2-footer: the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad (SR&RL).

This is another design that was a few years in the making, since I was never happy with the duck unders required on the upper level to get in as many branches as possible and make the design work. The plan laid dormant for a few years, until I rediscovered it back in March of 2017. I decided to finish the design in the hopes that maybe somebody can get some use out of part of it.

While I didn't make an attempt to copy the locations along the line exactly, I did put some effort into doing justice to some of the key scenes. For a few scenes I did use some model's license mainly because I really don't have enough knowledge of the line to fill in a lot of the blanks. Other locations I just left as merely a mainline without any details.
