1949 aerials of the Waterville Railway Co. Bridge locations

Locations of bridge #1 and #2 shown in the aerial are near the "s" curves along highway 2 between Watervlle and Doulgas.

Bridge #3 and #4 are located across Highway 2 from the old DOT rock quarry between Waterville and Douglas.

Bridge #5 is located just south of Douglas. In the photo you can see the engine wye and the Mansfield line that runs parallel to the Waterville Railway.
