Barnington Layout

This layout has no strict prototype but it is inspired by the Farmington junction. In Farmington the Maine Central Railroad (standard gauge) met the narrow gauge Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Railroad. The junction had some interesting crossings that are the main reason for me to build this layout.

  • The turntable begun its life as a N scale Peco turntable. My brother milled down the plastic deck about 0.8 mm. For the new wooden deck I glued single woodstrips. I removed the cast on pit rail and replaced it with code 55 rail on shortened ties. The turntable diameter is about 43 scale feet, just long enough for my largest Pine River Short Line engine, a Sango 2-6-0 Dachshund.
