Speaking of industrial 2' in northeastern US, one of the theme ideas I had was a layout set on a place like Gould Island off of Rhode Island. It would be a small, dinky 2' gauge line that would service that island, maybe picking up stuff at a small wharf, bringing it inland, then bringing something back out to the dock (perhaps some kind of natural resource being harvested there).

There was actually a small industrial line on that island that serviced a Torpedo Testing station for the first and second world wars. Some pictures to get an idea:
