This engine, called "Dewey," hauled logs, wood chips, and pulp from the Penobscot River to the pulp mill in Lincoln. The rail is called a narrow gauge (2") because it is narrower than a standard gauge 4' 8.5" rail. The men in the photo are unidentified.

One other engine besides "Dewey" hauled to the mill.
