Maine Two Footers / B&SR / Locomotive No.3


Bridgton & Saco River Railroad Locomotive No.3

B&SR No.3

Number 3, pictured here at Bridgton, was purchased nine years after B&SR was opened. It was more powerful than the previous two engines with its larger cylinders and heavier mass. When the different Bridgton engies were retired is a matter of conjecture. The No.3's arrival didn't send either of the previous engines into the scrap heap - 12 to 15 years passed before No.2 was sold to the WW&F.

Built: April 1892
Cylinders: 10-1/2" bore x 14" stroke
Driving wheels: 33" dia.
Total weight: 38000 lbs.
Tractive Force: 5240
Disposal: To KCRR No.3 about 1922
Scrapped: To WW&F No.8
