Bridgton & Saco River Presentation Review

I purchased it last week and it is an astounding collection of images, with hundreds of photos covering every aspect of the railroad. I was particularly impressed with the first section covering the right of way.  The photos are organized in geographic order from Bridgton Junction to Harrison, and there are something like 70 photos covering just the junction area alone, including several showing the section of dual-gauge track in front of the coal shed.  Tons of equipment photos too, plus photos of the SOCONY facilities, rosters, timetables, etc. If I’m not mistaken many of the photos have not been published previously and/or have not been identified geographically.  Well worth the price IMO.

Bridgton & Saco River Railroad – A Presentation

This is a PowerPoint download only – no physical book offered at this time.

Currently there are 660 images, maps, ICC reports, plans and other related documents to help the modeler / historian better understand the railroad. The presentation focuses on the right-of-way and equipment. Loaded with new photos that will hopefully provide you with a fresh look at this often overlooked 2-foot railroad.
