This week the first of the engines, repaired at the Portland Company’s works, arrived in Bridgton, not much the worst from the fiery furnace through which it passed several weeks ago. The engine has been thoroughly over hauled and strengthened and is good for many years service, barring accidents which are quite infrequent on our little road. The sister engine is expected about next week. At which time the sachems of the road sit in solemn conclave to hear the reports of the year’s experiences, as well as to make plans for the new.
