In 1902 the Katahdin Pulp and Paper Mill took full length logs, 4 foot logs, and also chips. This mill has narrow gauge railroad tracks. The difference between standard gauge and narrow gauge is the standard gauge is 4 foot 8 1/2 inches and narrow gauge are around 2 feet. The narrow gauge rails ran through the 1930s.
