Hinckley to Skowhegan

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

The Somerset & Kennebec Railroad began in 1853 when its line from Augusta to Waterville opened; the line was extended northwards to Skowhegan on November 19, 1856. The S&K was operated as a subsidiary of Kennebec and Portland Railroad, which was originally chartered in 1836. The K&P and the S&K came under the ownership of the Maine Central Railroad in 1874.

The line was abandoned in 1971 north of the line's northern-most customer, the Scott Paper mill, which is located north of Hinckley near the Somerset Kennebec county line.
