A daring wild-west event on the narrow gauge:

HIRAM: While the Mount Cutler House team was at Bridgton Junction, Thursday, awaiting passengers, the horse became frightened and ran away. At the same time the narrow gauge engine started and overtook the team at the intersection of the highway and railroad, about half a mile away and the fireman jumped from his engine and caught the horse before any damage had been done.
