Description:
The Sebago Lake & Franklin Railroad is a 1:20.3 layout on a 4x8 sheet, which the author built to be portable. The trackplan is a simple oval with some switching inside the oval. All rolling stock is four-wheeled because of the tight curves and are all scratchbuilt, as are the structures. There is a tremendous amount of detail.
