Title: Biddeford station (defunct)
Post by: Ted Miles on March 21, 2018, 05:55:41 PM
The Biddeford Station project was a commercial development on Route One in Biddeford. They had a loop of two-foot gauge track and some display equipment.

Their Diesel was a Model DDT by Plymouth. The project closed about 2012 when the owner named Rogers passed away. Does anyone know the details of the locomotive, or what happened to it after the project closed down?

Biddeford Station was actually supposed to be a satellite operation of Seashore Trolley, and eventually the terminus for the Trolley Museum.  The STM owns all the right of way between their current terminus and that location.  However, it would have required that STM buy another electrical sub station, which runs into millions.  So that plan died.

I believe all the track has been torn out. I don't know if the passenger equipment is still there, but we believe that the diesel still is, and is available (for a higher price than we're willing to pay, since I am sure someone will ask).
