STATE OF MAINE.

To His Excellency, William T. Haines, Governor or Maine:

The fifty-fifth annual report of the Board of Railroad Commissioners is herewith submitted, comprising returns of the operation of fourteen steam railroads, one terminal coinpany, fourteen electric railroads and one horse railroad.

There are five narrow, or two feet, gauge steam railroads in the state with a mileage of 197.11 miles, an increase over 1912 of 3.42 miles.

The total mileage of steam railroads, including narrow gauge roads, in Maine, on June 30, 1913, was 2,301.03 miles, an increase of 16.65 miles.

The gross increase is as follows:

Extension by the Maine Central Railroad Company from Harmony to Mainstream, 2.01 miles, and extension of industrial tracks .67 of a mile; Rangeley Lakes and Megantic Railroad, a new railroad from Oquossoc to Kennebago, 10.65 miles; an extension by the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad to Mt. Abram township, .84 of a mile, and industrial tracks .81 of a mile, making a total of 16.98 miles.

The gross decrease is as follows:

Remeasurement of the Bridgton and Saco River Railroad, .23 of a mile; remeasurement of the Maine Central Railroad, Royal Junction to Waterville, 10 of a mile, making a total of .33 of a mile.

The net increase in mileage for the year ending June 30, 1913, was therefore 16.65 miles.

The total mileage of street railways in operation on June 30, 1913 was 485.09 miles. There was no increase in street railway mileage during the year.

The following table gives the mileage of all Steam Railroads

operated in Maine.
