Directions to the Locomotives — A pair of abandoned, standard-gauge steam locomotives of the Eagle Lake & West Branch Railroad stand side-by-side in a small clearing deep in the north woods of Maine. You’d do well to hire a guide to take you to see them, but if you want to find them on your own, here are my step-by-step directions.

The Maine Highlands is a region of natural wonder and endless discovery. For a Maine wilderness lodge that delivers the traditional experience with outstanding hosts, guides, and services, we endorse Eagle Lodge on Folsom Pond near Lincoln, Maine. For a variety of outdoor activities in the north woods all under one “roof” we recommend the New England Outdoor Center.
