Baggage on US Airways Express/Colgan Air??

Hi all, just looking at options for a trip next June.
Will probably fly into Boston from Oz and then looking to fly on to Bar Harbor next day. I can see direct flights with US Airways Express (operated by Colgan Air) but when I click on baggage policy the link is broken. Is this a budget airline? Are we likely to be slogged a fortune for luggage? We will have flown business on Qantas as far as Boston - not sure if this makes any difference?
Our other option is to drive.
Can anyone offer any clarification please?

Colgan Air is a regional airline that operates turboprop planes in the US, and is a subsidiary of Pinnacle Airlines. BOS-BHB is flown with 34-seat Saab 340.

Baggage policy is the same as regular USAirways flight. FIrst bag $25, second bag $35. $3 discount each if paid online.

Makes no difference what ticket you use to get to BOS, unless they can tag your bags all the way to BHB despite your overnight stay (that may be possible if you stay in Boston is under 24 hours and you arrive BOS late, departing for BHB early).

Thank you rkkwan. So if you are over 50lbs but only have one bag you pay the two bag fee? (I will try not to be!!)

That'd be $50 plus the original $25.
