During 1971 this United Turbo Train made a tour through the Western United States sponsored by Amtrak and the U.S. Department of Transportation. The three car trainset, shown just south of San Jose, California on the Southern Pacific tracks, will stop next at Oakland for display and then on to Portland, Oregon and return east via Burlington Northern tracks.
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.
