Thanks, Glenn.  I'll dig into that.

Man, I'd love to get my eyes on those maps, Allen!  Is there any plan to digitize them, since I'm a long way from the WW&F?  Sad

Hi Herb,

The late Bob Outland pointed out the location of Summit siding to me many years ago.  Bill Shelley and I had the opportunity to visit it a year or two ago.  The siding was on the west side of the mainline a couple hundred yards north of the point where the ROW takes a sharp left hand curve through a bit of granite ledge.  This cut is in the area once known as Barker Falls and is the location where the water from Barker Pond spills into Hancock Brook. The ROW north of the cut runs parallel to and is roughly 30- 40 feet above the cottages lining the west shore of Barker Pond.

Best Regards,
Glenn

Glenn, where was the siding at Summit? We had a good idea where Mullins was on our trip, but the ground had changed enough that the only possible spot I thought was by the camp on Barker Pond that is right on the edge of the road.

Glenn, that is perfect!  Exactly where my friend and I figured it would be.  Thank you very much sir!  Cheesy

Oops, one correction, I think the location I referred to was known as Hancock Falls, not Barker Falls.

Now I'm not sure ... can someone else confirm?


Best Regards,
Glenn

Mike,
Was that track map that Bill Shelly had when we did the walkabout a loaner from someone else or is it something he might stilll have? If he still has the map, perhaps he would allow it to be photographed. Even if the photos were of specific locations only, at least we would have some idea of the number and length of sidings as well as approximate locations based upon mile markers.

I'll try to get with the historical society sometime soon and see if I can copy some pages.

Hi all,

Have the location of these maps been determined? The Bridgton Historical Soc lists "B & SRR Track Map, Primary Sheets
B & SRR R.O.W. & Track Maps Misc. docs. In Bridgton Machine & Lumber Co. Coll., ca. 1910-1917 " on their website.

I'm thinking of heading up there soon to see if I can see them. I have next Thursday and Friday off.

Try visiting the Bridgton Historical Society. Check the hours and dates to make sure they are open. I saw them once a number of years ago. They have tables you can roll them out on to view.

Good luck.
