Welcome to the
Tall Pines Scenic Railroad
The Tall Pines Scenic Railroad is located in Berwick, Maine on 15+ acres. The land is heavily wooded with a mixture of Red and White Pines, Hemlock, Fir, Maple, Oak, and Birch trees.
There is 3778' of 15" guage track made up from 12 lb rail lag bolted to 4 x 4 x 30" pressure treated ties. Heavy duty landscape fabric was first put down to prevent ballast from sinking into the ground and to prevent weed growth. Finally, 3/4" stone ballast is being used to level the track.
Tall Pines Scenic Railroad currently has a 3" scale GE 50 ton 0-4-0 switcher. The prime mover is a Kohler 16 hp gas engine driving a hydraulic pump which in turn drives two hydraulic motors, one on each axle. The locomotive has an air system for train brakes and air horns and has operating headlights. Weight - 1200 lbs, Wheel diameter - 8 5/8", Fuel - gasoline, capacity 3.6 gal.
There are five freight cars on the railroad. These include one flat car, one 2 bay hopper, one low side gondola, one high side gondola, and one boxcar. Also included are one MOW weed spraying car, and one MOW backhoe car. This is basically a flat car with a backhoe attached to the deck.
The railroad is for sale. Everything is for sale as a package deal. I will NOT sell the rail separately until I have sold all the rolling stock and spare parts should anyone be interested in those. Please do not call unless you are truly interested. Purchaser will be responsible for dismantalling and removal. Interested parties may contact me by phone 603-781-7857 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
The line is private and not open to the general public.
