In the Downeast region of Maine we find ourselves with two (completely fictional) railroads: the Pogwassek Railway (PRWY) and the Prescott and Cedar Island Railroad (P&CI).

The PRWY is a uniquely isolated operation on an island, lacking a connection to the mainland besides a barge with a crane that can lift lighter freight cars on and off, and uses relatively lighter rails than most railroads.

Description

Pogwassek Island 1

In the Downeast region of Maine we find ourselves with two (completely fictional) railroads: the Pogwassek Railway (PRWY) and the Prescott and Cedar Island Railroad (P&CI).

The PRWY is a uniquely isolated operation on an island, lacking a connection to the mainland besides a barge with a crane that can lift lighter freight cars on and off, and uses relatively lighter rails than most railroads.
To this end, much of the rolling stock is dated pre-1975 and their two similarly old locomotives (a GE 44-tonner and an ALCO HH660) are well equipped to run these tracks. Their largest business is a granite pit that ships out cut
slabs of granite, along with some small miscellaneous freight that gets shipped to the docks at Adams Bay. Multiple proposals have been made to reconnect the line with the mainland since the original Oakbay barge and dock burned
in the early 90s, but for now the PRWY remains isolated.

The P&CI runs from a connection off the Calais Branch (a real mothballed MEC line, restored in my optimistic view of Maine) to the coastal port of Oakbay, filled with canneries and other fish-related industries,
along with a new port for importing road salt and woodchips. The P&CI also runs passenger service during the warmer months between Oakbay and Butler, using two former Penn Central Budd RDCs.

The route is small and has a bit of a strange premise, but it's densely packed and filled with beautiful scenery along with some hidden secrets.
You may fiddle with the route, tinker with it, publish your edits, just credit me and don't try to sell it commercially.

To install, simply extract the .rwp file and use the Railworks Utilities application.
Or you can simply open the rwp file and  drag the folder titled "9baf1eec-0f91-4ba7-9fcf-d8f606300ebb" into the railworks/content/routes folder.

For this route, you will need:

Payware:
-RWA Lakeside (RWA website)
-VNHRR Springfield-New Haven (Steam)
-Horseshoe Curve (Steam)

Freeware:
-Portland Terminal/Maine Maritime (RWA website)
-Pennsylvania Steam (RWA website)
-Columbia Valley Pacific
-RCAP (RWA website)
-John Lippai's New River District Trestle Pack

- harryadkins’ Central Vermont 40ft flatcars and Michael Stephen’s 40ft flatcar (RWA website) (for the granite blocks to show up)

Highly suggested:
Pogwassek Railway repaints from mindenjohn
Prescott and Cedar Island Railroad repaints from buzz456

There are numerous pieces of New England rolling stock in the file library that would fit.

Thank you to buzz and mindenjohn for beta testing and producing repaints for these railroads.
