MRRHQ 1920s Maine Central Mixed Freight & Passenger Set w/Custom Replica G Class 4-6-0 #109

The Maine Central Railroad Company (reporting mark MEC) was a former U. S. Class I railroad in central and southern Maine. It was chartered in 1856 and began operations in 1862. By 1884, Maine Central was the longest railroad in New England. Maine Central had expanded to 1,358 miles (2,185 km) when the United States Railroad Administration assumed control in 1917. Like many of our great 19th and 20th Century railroads now faded into history, the MEC has a fascinating and well documented history.

The MEC acquired, or commissioned, 10 "G" Class 4-6-0 locomotives between 1898 and 1906. All had been scrapped by 1935. For our Custom MECSET we chose an awesome Roundhouse 455 Harriman 4-6-0 Kit w/Can Motor to model Maine Central G Class 4-6-0 #109 originally built by Manchester in 1906 for the Somerset RR. A pair of Super detailed Accurail 41089 40' Single Sheathed Wood Box Cars and a super rare, and super upgraded, Roundhouse 00647 MEC 34' Overton Coach 4-Pak make up the consist. Like Maine itself, this set is truly unique and, likely, there will not be another. Don't be "gawmy", better "book it."
