Acadian Village Displays Railroad Building from New Sweden

April 22, 2011

If you would like to see an original railroad building that once was located in New Sweden, then head for the Acadian Village in Van Buren, Maine this summer.

Here is the description from the Acadian Village website where you can also see a photograph of the building:

“The building was donated by the Bangor and Aroostook Railroad. This building was used at one time as a car house and to store equipment in New Sweden. The entrance door is wide for the purpose of bringing in the large mail and baggage cart or motor cart. The motor car on the track in front replaced the hand car to check sections of tracks from one station or section house to another. In the beginning there was one in every town.”
