Model Railroads in Maine

Some pieces in my collection…

Same case with a different arrangement of equipment.

One of the two actual builder plates from Illinois Central 2-8-2 #1944, (someone else did the paint job before me).


I also am preparing to create an outdoor railroad (1:20.3 scale) with these locomotives.  The Sandy River model is a live steamer from Roundhouse.  The Shay is a Bachmann.

Paul Smith’s basement HO layout in North Lincoln.  (An N-scale layout in the coffee table.)


Paul Smith’s garden layout.  First as conceived, then as it was in about 2016.

Some scenes from Eric Schade’s garden railway in Phippsburg.  Paul’s is electrified.  Eric’s is not and depends entirely on self-powered locomotives, which for Eric means steam.

Eric has a YouTube channel at  (Eric’s other specialty is building kayaks.)

More from Eric’s outdoor railroad.
