Boothbay Railway Village brought a recently restored S. D. Warren #2 0-4-0T locomotive to the Big ‘E’ show in Amherst on January 25. It was built by Baldwin in 1895. Amherst Society grant money played an important part in completing the restoration. It is the only operational 2-foot gauge industrial locomotive that ran in Maine. Live and under steam!

Still Hoping Micro Engineering Ladder track in Code 83 is still backordered. The factory is handling the backlog while trying to supply the rest of their product line. Watch this space or wait for your notification of shipment. Your continued understanding is appreciated.

NCE The parts shortage is still there but we still have systems and throttles in stock.

National NG Convention Sacramento is just a bit too far for us to attend this year, but we’ll be at St. Louis for the 40th Anniversary Convention.
