Hi gents!

After viewing so many of your screenshots I want to share some of me with you. They`ve been taken on the Bridgton & Saco River RR. I am currently rebuilding this Maine 2-ft line. Ca a third of the scenery is on place. Anyway I must still build all its rolling stock ;-)

So enjoy the ride with Monson RR No 4 and some SR&RL coaches by Sandy River Tom.


Cheers,

Christian

Hey Christian!
You keep layin' track & I'll get the Car Shop Crew busy building the rolling stock!

The Monson RR only took 3 years; we should be able to get the B&SR released in . . . . maybe 5 years! :rofl:

Hi Nathalie, Hi Tom!

Thank you very much for your praise and your wishes :-)
I hope it doesn`t take 5 years. ;-)

1 year would be fine :-)

The MRR took that long because of corrections, corrections
and corrections again :-(

I hope I didn`t do so much errors like at the MRR ;-)

Looking forward for the rolling stock!

Cheers,

Christian

Hi Tom!

You make me getting red in my face :blink: Thank you for your great
compliment :jawdrop2:

And what about Maines most famous water house? It was photographed quite
often in the railfan hiday of the B&SR. The SR&RL head several similar ones
but unfortunatually they didn`t see the start of the railfanning era.

Cheeers,

Christian

Hi Ladies and Gentlemen!

I thought its time for some new pics. I arrived at Perleys Mills where I hope
to finish the work tomorrow. Also all my sawmills got better suiting ground textures.
My old ones had the "brown" painted to a much to large area. My new ones got some fresh
sawdust...

Recall: In the early 20ies sawmills where still a very lucrative biz.

Cheers,

Christian
