Hi!, am a railroad enthusiast from the UK, I'm looking for photo's & track diagrams for some of the minor terminals in rural New England, in particular those up near the Canadian border. If anyone has anything they think maybe of interest please feel free to contact me. I am particularly interested in the line to St Francis, but information on any other remote lines in Maine/NH/VT would be of interest.

Here is the Maine State Archive site.
Railroading is of interest to me also as my great-grandfather, grandfather and uncle worked for them.
If you scroll down the page, you will find track layout.

John,

I am in the process of dismantling my late fathers railroad collection.
To date I have reviewed 7 albums containing Boston and Maine photo''s and postcards of the B & M stations and routes, thru New Hampshire , Maine and part of Massachusetts. He also has a locomotive roster for the Portland and Rochester RR. Some photo's date back to 1877. ALso timetable's from the Belfast and Moosehead Lake RR.

He had route maps of Belfast & Moosehead, B & M, Maine Central, Fitchburg to Gardner, Mass, Adams and Canaan Branches.He had more photos of engines then we can count, with all the pertinet information.
He had newspaper articles and photos of train wrecks, annual reports dating back to 1850 and original bill of ladens and passes going back to 1871.

If any of this would be of any interest to you, please let me know.

Raymond E Hill
