The actual run appears to be about 16 miles but it branches off in every which way direction and I haven't decided which branch to include just yet. Nor do I have any idea how far if there's even a terminating point available. So for now, this is a pretty small route. And I have to add, we're just in the planning stages. Let's take a look.
In my list of to-do routes, I have always wanted to do a route somewhere in New England. I didn't anticipate something in Maine and nor this high up. But this route follows a river all the way down to Eagle Lake where at times the water edge seems just a few feet away from the tracks. If all dems well this should be a neat little route. As far as I can tell there's not much switching on it (but we can fix that!). Scenic seems the word to describe it. I could extend the route farther south so it's a fifty mile route (to Ashland). Except, there's nothing but trees! And for miles around. The route should be an interesting drive for its twisty nature. The water on one side, light urbanization on the other, I think this is going to be great!
If you'all know any good info on this route (like who even runs these tracks), I'd appreciate all the info you can give. Pictures of homes in Maine would also be appreciated. This is the very begining, I have no idea when this route will be done - you will be kept informed. This will be for RW, of course, just figured I needed to say that.
