Carry Pond & Carry Brook RR
« on: January 07, 2009, 08:10:20 PM »
Just looking through a logging railroad site http://loggingrailroads.com/me.htm and it lists this railroad. Only lasted 2 years. Anyone ever heard of it? I don't think I have.

the site said that it didn't own any engines.  it may have been an attempt that never really got off the ground

Sometimes when there was a long portage between bodies of water, portage railways were built. The really well travelled ones had 0-4-0Ts pulling a passenger car and a rack car for boats. The lesser ones were meant for push cars, and were often either wood railed or strap railed.

I'm guessing this may be one of these.

Thanks for jogging the memory Steve. I remember now reading something about that in a book about the Eagle Lake Railway. More research for the next snowy day.
