Red Hook Bay(HO)

Red Hook Bay is a fictitious busy seaport on the coast of Maine, USA. Besides the local fishing industry, Red Hook Bay is host to a brewery and a dairy. The town is a major transportation hub for the coastal islands off the coast of Maine and has ferry services from the wharf for both passengers and cars. The town is also a railroad junction for the Boston & Maine and Maine Central railroads. It is also served by a local tram service with a tram stop in front of Hokum’s Burlesque Theatre and the Topless Bar on Main Street.
Set in the late steam/early diesel era of the late 1940’s. It is somewhere close to Route 1, which links Portland and Rockland in Maine. The thirty structures include craftsmen kits from a wide variety of American specialist companies. The busy seaport has several boats including a sternwheeler. The structures have been deliberately constructed to look a little worse for wear. The majority of the buildings are “limited-edition” craftsmen kits. The lighthouse is a replica of the Thomas Point Light located off the coast of Maryland but is similar to lighthouses that can be found in New England. The farm features a typical New England style farmhouse with connected barn. Where you find sailors you will find bars and other establishments catering to their interests.
