Bridgton Yard
« on: February 28, 2012, 09:19:54 PM »
Hi All,

Does anyone have a good idea of how the Bridgton Yard was laid out circa 1930-1940?  I have been doing some research and only found a photograph of the yard throat. I watched Guss Prats Riding the Maine Two Footers and got a few good views of the roundhouse area.  Any images (or maps  :P) would be very helpful!

Thank you,

Vincent,
I'm not near my pictures or books at the moment but if you go to www.bridgtonhistory.org you will access the historical website for Bridgton.  There is a link on the website to an article on the B&H I helped create. There are some pics of the yard there that may be new to you.

Also while looking through the photos, have a map handy. I think there is one in Two feet to the Lakes. It will help orient the photos and give you a decent idea of what you are looking at, and it's approximate location.
