Hi Folks,
After an absence of over sixty years, the group “RETURN OF THE RAILS” in Bridgton, Maine and the Maine Narrow Gauge Railroad Museum in Portland, Maine have signed an agreement that will return two foot narrow gauge rails to the town of Bridgton, Maine.
The first phase of this effort is to display a two foot gauge passenger coach from the Maine Narrow Gauge collection in Bridgton.  Starting Monday, June 9th, local volunteers and businesses will combine their efforts to construct a raised display platform 4 feet high, 10 feet wide, and 40 feet long in front of the Chamber of Commerce Information Center on Portland Road (US Route 302).  The plan is to complete the display by July 4th.
Subsequent stages are being planned and will be undertaken as sufficient support becomes available.  Participants and contributors of all kinds are encouraged.
If you are interested in helping, please contact either:
