I was rereading Ellis Walker's Musings book and in Two-foot musing #5.  there is talk that the Cumberland Mills railroad was 10 miles long.  Does anyone know where the line ran.  Or if there a any remains in Westbrook.
10 miles seems along way for one of S.D.Warren's tank engines to venture.

Thanks,
Mark

10 miles does seem long. But if you start figuring sidings and all it might be right. I have not seen anything down that way as far as remains. But I am not sure exactly where it went. Everything is Standard Gauge now of course. And not much traffic. The plant is all but shut down now.
