The Narragansett Bay Railway & Navigation Co. was founded in 2001 as an On30 modular railroad. As a narrow gauge short line, the NBR&N winds it's way thru the marshes, reeds and sand dunes along the fringes of Rhode Island's fabled Narragansett Bay. The layout is "free-form" in shape and, as such, has no inside or enclosed space. The main modules are 30" wide with a single-track main on each side. Springing from the main layout are our "FreMo" Divisions, these branches are characterized by narrow modules, only 15" wide, with a single mainline. No mountainous scenery here, much of the layout is coves, inlets and bays with short trains lumbering over very low trestles and causeways. Although the NBR&N is fictional (Rhode Island never had a narrow gauge common carrier) its inspiration comes from the nearby narrow gauge lines on both Marthas Vineyard and Nantucket as well as the extinct standard gauge Providence, Warren, and Bristol branch of the New Haven RR.
