I can remember that when #5 Baldwin went down at the same time that for some reason Porter #3 was unavailable in the Lincoln NH paper mill, the B&M sent an S-1 or S-3 up under lease until the emergency passed. I was always concerned about the light rail in the yard tracks but it turns out that while the main line into the woods was 60lb (it purportedly went to the Edaville), the yard trackage, according to the B&M Value Sheets, was 72lb and 75lb and was tieplated. All that rail was leased to the EB&L by the B&M. Today the entire paper mill yard trackage that was salvaged is somewhere in the Laconia-Lakeport region on State of NH property (owner of the Concord-Lincoln branch)
