Seashore Trolley Museum, the Museum of Mass Transit in Kennebunkport, Maine, is celebrating its 80th Birthday year in 2019! Many events are scheduled and many more will be scheduled before the opening of public operations on May 4, 2019. 

The Fairfield and Shawmut Railway
     It is early in 1903 when Amos F. Gerald, general manager of the Waterville and Oakland Street Railway, and William T. Haines and George F. Terry of Waterville organized the Fairfield and Shawmut Railway to build from the Waterville and Fairfield Railway terminus on Main Street, Fairfield, to the village of Shawmut, a part of Fairfield township. The articles of association were submitted for approval of the Railroad Commissioners on February 27 and the charter was issued on March 2.

     Some three years elapsed before anything was done toward building the line. The location was approved on March 1, 1906, and the charter was extended for three years on March 26.

     Construction began in 1907, the route commencing at Fairfield village and continuing along the easterly side of the highway (the present Route 201) to a point opposite the Maine Central Railroad depot in Shamut. Seventy-pound T-rail and cedar ties were used in building the road and the overhead construction was mostly of the side-bracket type, with about .10 mile of span wire suspension. The railway was 3.10 miles in length and there was .20 mile of sidings and turnouts for a total of 3.30 miles of track. There was a grade crossing of the Maine Central's mainline on MainStreet, Fairfield.

     A small wooden carhouse was erected midway on the line and two passenger cars, one 10-bench open and a small deck roof, single-truck, combination car, both built by Jackson and Sharp in 1894, were purchased from the defunct Skowhegan and Norridgewock Railway (also controlled by Gerald) which had ceased operations in 1903. Other equipment included one freight car, one work car, and a snow plow, probably all acquired second-hand.

     The railway was built and equipped at a total cost of $68,000 covered by $30,000 in capital stock and $30,000 in 20-year, five percent first mortgage bonds, maturing on July 1, 1927. Amos F. Gerald, of course, was president and general manager, and H. D. Eaton and William T. Haines were secretary and treasurer respectively.

     An inspection trip over the new line was conducted by the Railroad Commissioners on October 8, 1907. They found the road so constructed as to be safe for public travel and issued the required certificate immediately.

Electric Railways 1863-1946."

     Operations of the Fairfield and Shawmut were very simple. 
Schedules were correlated with those of the Waterville and Fairfield Railway (later the Waterville, Fairfield, and Oakland) to ensure positive connections at Fairfield, and half hour service was provided, the three-mile route having a one-way running time of 15 minutes. The fare was a nickel.

     Connections were also made at Fairfield with the Benton and Fairfield Railway.

     The F&S appears to have been a fairly profitable road. While its earnings were never large, revenues always covered operating expenses and fixed charges, and there was a little left over for the surplus account. The track, overhead, and equipment were well maintained and the railway was free from any major accidents.

     Indications are that some difficulties took place during 1912 and early 1913, for the company to file its annual report for the year ended June 30, 1913. The 1914 report reveals that the 1912 surplus balance had been entirely wiped out and that the track and overhead had been reduced in valuation. In addition, Amos F. Gerald was no longer with the company. No reason for the apparent troubles can be ascertained.

     Another .13 mile of siding and turnouts was added in 1909 and during early 1914, a second closed car was added to the roster. Equipment as of June 30, 1915, included two closed cars, one open, two work cars, and one snow plow. One of the closed cars was rebuilt in 1920 and in 1921, a 20-foot single-truck closed car, built by Briggs in 1894, was purchased second-hand from the Waterville, Fairfield, and Oakland Railway. A second car of the same type was given to the F&S by the WF&O in 1923.

     The railway remained in operation until 1927. On July 1 of that year, the 20-year mortgage bonds issued in 1907 became due and could not be redeemed. the bondholders took over, a receiver was appointed, and he immediately sought authority to abandon the road. The necessary permission was soon given and the last cars ran on July 23.

     Following abandonment, the entire Fairfield and Shawmut property was sold to the Waterville, Fairfield, and Oakland for salvage purposes. all rails and overhead were quickly removed and the rolling stock was junked - except for a single-truck closed car and a four-wheel snow plow which were taken over by the WF&O.
