Title: WW&F, coal, and Togus
Post by: Jeff Schumaker on November 17, 2018, 02:19:57 AM
I came across the following news note from the online Gardiner Reporter Journal. Dated December 5, 1902, it read:

"A further supply of coal for the National Home will probably come over the Wiscassett (sic) & Quebec R.R., to be trucked from the nearest station."

I have not found any subsequent news item that reports the delivery of the coal, so the above note might have been incorrect speculation. However, if the coal was delivered and not reported, what would be "the nearest station"?

Jeff, my guess is Maxcy's or Windsor would be the transfer point, perhaps dependent on the road conditions and gradients involved between either of those two points and Togus.
