Casco Bay Northern Railroad

Serving Coastal Maine


The trains of Maine had a two symbol designator for their trains. The first letter was the originating town and the second was the ending town. This is what I came up with for the towns on my layout where a train will start or end. Even numbered trains run North and East, odd numbered trains run South and West. Turns are bi-directional, so their letter designators have the starting and farthest location and numbered up from 1.

Of course just to break the rules a bit the Wood Job and Canadian trains have letters based on the train name.
