Wiscasset Passenger car re-numbering                  Rev 0                          09-12-2013

The Wiscasset line had an interesting corporate history which meant that the company changed its name several times, so that the equipment was re-lettered and occasionally re-numbered throughout the period of operations. The first table below shows the numbers that the passenger stock carried at various times as well the eventual disposal.
