Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Kennebec Central Railroad was a 2 ft gauge narrow gauge railroad operating between Randolph and Togus, Maine. The railroad was built to offer transportation for American Civil War veterans living at Togus to the nearby City of Gardiner. Tracks of 25-pound steel rails ran 5 miles from Randolph, Maine to the veterans home at Togus. Train service began on 23 July 1890. The Randolph terminal included a small, Queen Anne style station and a long set of stairs up to the covered bridge passengers used to reach Gardiner. Initial rolling stock was 6 flat cars and 2 box cars built by W.H.Dyer of Strong, Maine, 2 passenger coaches and a combination passenger-baggage car built by Jackson & Sharpe, and a 16-ton 0-4-4 Forney locomotive built by Baldwin Locomotive Works.show more
