"Model" at 1:1, and you've got 2' narrow gauge!

You are correct the railroad could be full size two foot gauge, however the plan is that while very large the equipment will be used it will be much smaller than what was used in Maine. More the size used by smaller industrial lines, but with a passenger car.
