Osseo Brook in Lincoln, New Hampshire during the spring months. In 1901, during the East Branch & Lincoln Railroad era, J.E. Henry and Sons attempted to use a narrow-gauge line at logging Camp 8 to harvest timber from the slopes of Whaleback Mountain. This roughly 1.25 mile +/- long line, consisting of a series of switchbacks, traveled into the Osseo Brook drainage. It lasted only for a few years and was discontinued after a brakeman was killed when a loaded log car ran out control down the track. With the exception of this line, the EB&L Railroad was a standard gauge railroad.
