See Maine’s Historic Ghost Trains
Posted on Facebook this week by Steve Yenko of Mainly Maine Photography, watch this cool video trip deep into the northern woods to see the Ghost Trains.
These abandoned locomotives have been there for around hundred years. Early in the 20th century when they were still in operation, they played an important part in Maine's logging industry. When the Great Depression came, the logging industry suffered and they stopped operation. The locomotives have stayed right there ever since.
Steve takes us to the site where these ancient trains rust in the silence of the forest. Since most of us probably don't want to brave a long rough ride on dirt roads in the Allagash to reach these forgotten relics, fortunately Mr Yenko did.
