1915c MEC Station Lincoln, Me 002


Looking east towards Mattawamkeag this Post Card scene might be dated by the auto, 1910?. Both semaphores are down so no train orders are pending. A box car is spotted in front of the freight house, the water tower is placed so the east bound passenger cars are adjacent to the platform while the locomotive gets a drink. The lamp over the entrance to what looks like a tool house looks like a gas or oil lamp. There are two boys track side and 3 adults posing for the photographer... Looks like about a dozen telegraph wire pairs on the 3 cross arms. C 2019 the station still stands and there is a single seldom used track. The platform and freight house are long gone. /DL
