Nestled deep in the Maine Woods near the northwest end of Chamberlain Lake sit the rusting hulks of two large steam powered locomotives. The trains are remnants of the industrial revolution in an area so remote that it was more practical to park the engines when operations ended than bring them out of the woods.

These mills, in turn, produced the lumber and paper that fueled development of a prosperous nation.
