HO SCALE: Maine Central

I was asked by a member of a rail group that I belong to, to do a freelanced end of branch line HO layout based on the Maine Central to fit his 18-inch by 8-foot space. The layout owner wanted the design to include an interchange with the Bangor and Aroostook and a few online industries to switch including a creamery, a textile mill, and a lumber yard. He also wanted a small station and engine house. I was able to include all that, and was also able to throw in a team track, and a power house for the mill.

This is a really nice track plan. A lot fit into an 8' length. But not so dense as to be unrealistic.
