Workers at the Lincoln paper mill huddle around East Branch and Lincoln locomotive No. 5 in the 1950s. The EB&L served the paper mill in Lincoln, switching cars and connecting with the Boston and Maine Railroad. The EB&L was the longest logging railroad in NH, covering over 72 miles. Lincoln had a large railroad yard long before the arrival of the tourist Hobo Railroad. The mill is now long gone, only a portion of the original yard remains and most of the railroad action in Lincoln has moved across the street to the Hobo Railroad. No. 5 can be seen operating today at Clark’s Trading Post.
