The new Bridgton and Saco River Railroad museum now has a Facebook page!

New revised Roster listed below. Thank you for all the suggestions!

Bridgton & Saco River Railway / Re: Bridgton"s Third Coach at the WW&F?

Thank you for all the help! So it seems that coach 17 was so far gone, that only the trucks were used in the rebuilding of coach 18/6. I am planning on changing my B&SR roster, to amend the wrongs. 

One thing I am not sure of is which is the second boxcar being traded for flatcar 34?

This post mentions a second boxcar to be brought,3299.msg38889.html#msg38889

Since Boxcar 50 is owned by Maine Locomotive and Machine, which is this other boxcar, and since flatcar is being traded away, what is the large Bridgton tank going to be placed on. Earlier posts mention flatcar 34.

If there is anything missing, changed or wrong, please let me know!

New revised link added to replace old, slightly inaccurate Roster.

So, probably this was not originally coach, due to build and size. Unless, as you said Mike that it was significantly altered before it was even brought to Maine.

There were some rumors that parts of coach 17 were helped to make SR&RL Coach #17, but I am not sure if that information is true either. I believe Edaville had both, and they were both lettered 17, and some information on the burned Bridgton Coach and the other 17 coach got mixed together.

But I did see on some older roster of Maine Narrow Gauge stuff and it something about 205 being coach 17, but again, maybe information could have been not true. I made this roster a year or so ago.

I was doing some research at the large amount of inventory at the WW&F due to many things coming over from the Maine Narrow Gauge Museum than I had not seen before.

I saw a photo of flatcar 14 on top of Flatcar 205, and I had not realized that 205 had been restored.

Last year I had created a roster of the remaining Bridgton and Saco River Railroad equipment, and I had discovered that flatcar 205 was actually coach 17 of Bridgton, later renamed Elthea at Edaville.

I heared It had burned, and later was turned into possibly an excursion car, and later a flatcar. From the WW&F's work on this car, was there any evidence of this car once being a coach? The original length of coach 17 was 42 ft, 6in long.

Well, if it the railroad goes south, it not only would help with passenger numbers, but would really put the Wiscasset in the WISCASSET Waterville and Farmington Railway. ;D

WOW! With all the talk over going toward 218, I completely forgot that there is an alternative to going north. I must admit, whenever I stand on the platform, I always look longingly at the neatly mowed path old ROW to the south, across the road, and wonder...

Is Box Car 67 considered completed, or just on hold due to other projects?

Two Feet to the Lakes has skyrocketed lately on amazon, starting at $470.00, and going as high as $1,231.03! It's not even in pristine condition, there all in "good" condition. All Robert C. Jones Two Footers books are amazing and insightful for me, one of the younger generation of railroad enthusiasts. Sounds like a great buy to me!

Here is a map concerning the situation involving the road and river.

Here is the video of the start up, including the whistle show off at the end!

Wow! as of 9:30pm, they have reached over $21,000. Impressive fundraising, considering that about 2 hours ago they had not reached $20,000! I hope they can make the deadline!
