Maine 2 footers were known to derail due to ice conditions. Also 1 of them had a new locomotive with no baffles in the water tank. It came to a stop, then fell over. Baflles were added.

Yes, I forgot about them. Got a question though. since the 24" Ry did exist up there were there any cases in higher winds were the cars would blow off the tracks or at least tip over due to wind?

We all know that standard gauge is 4'8" between rails and anything less is Narrow gauge. Perhaps the standards there are 36" and 30". Was there any other sizes used on a powered narrow gauge railroad, not referring to mining track of 24 or 18 inch.
