Well we had perfect weather. It’s just very remote and the roads are very rough. The Golden Road and Telos Road are both working logging roads, unpaved, and loaded with shale. We had a blowout.Very cool. I had actually never heard of the Ghost trains.
The Northern Maine wilderness is just something else. And I've really only experienced the fringes of it visiting hospitals in Greenville, Millinocket and Ft Kent for work.
It's kind of remarkable that it's not a more popular destination given the massive lakes and stunning scenery. I guess the season is just too short for most people's weather preferences and the distance too far to attract more people. Not a bad thing though.
Anything made of wood is just about gone. But the heavy gauge steel and iron is doing pretty well. The locomotives were actually lifted onto new tracks. Otherwise they would’ve sunk into the ground just because of their weight. How much do they weight you ask? …Awesome, its crazy how well preserved the train looks considering its almost spent a century in the wild.
