BAR cars stuck in the woods

Seeing railroad boxcars away from the tracks around here no longer surprises me. Many of them stand beside farmhouses and sheds or even businesses, where they serve as extra storage space, presumably cheap or for the taking.

But this sight along State Route 191 always grabs me.

Like they simply stopped in time.
It’s like the trees are trying to pull the cars back into the earth itself.

The Bangor and Aroostook Railroad served Washington County as well as the Penobscot Bay region and the spud country up north.
