The Allagash Railway on Facebook

For those of you who are on Facebook, Mike Confalone has set up an Allagash Railway Facebook Group. Here is Mike's description of the group:

The Allagash Railway Group is devoted to Mike Confalone's proto-freelance HO scale Allagash Railway model railroad. The Allagash is based in west-central and northern Maine in the early spring of 1985. Allagash is a fully integrated part of the Guilford family, which includes sister roads Maine Central, Boston & Maine and Delaware & Hudson.

The railroad occupies a 58' x 24' space (basement and garage) in our New Hampshire home. Constructions began in 2006 or so. 85% of the railroad is fully scenicked. We operate every 4 or 5 weeks.


In addition to many how-to videos and articles in the model railroad press, Mike posts regularly on the Model Railroad Hobbyist forum.

If you aren't familiar with Mike's work, you owe it to yourself to check out his group. He is one of the finest modelers in the hobby today and his work is absolutely amazing. I've picked up a number of helpful tips and techniques from his work. And if you are familiar with the Allagash, well, you already know you owe it to yourself to check out his group.
