Description

Introduction

The last of the long-distance cross-country trolley lines which once abounded in New Engiand was the 30-mile route between Lewiston and Bath via Brunswick in the State of Maine. Built by the Lewiston, Brunswick & Bath Street Railway Company in 1898, it was operated by the Lewiston, Augusta & Waterville Street Railway Company from 1907 to 1919, and was abandoned by the LA&W's successor, the Androscoggin & Kennebec Railway Company in 1937 after a lifetime of nearly 40 years. It might have lasted even longer had it not been for highway construction!
