Lombard Log Hauler Helps Students Complete Museum Model


BRADLEY - A unique part of Maine's rich logging history made it's way to Penobscot County today. Our Erin Thomas has the story.

This nearly 100-year-old, 40,000 lb. machine was once used to move logs out of the North Woods. Now, it will help students at the University of Maine reconstruct a similiar piece of equipment.

The rare, fully-functional, Lombard log hauler, which originally ran on steam, used air compression to make it's move Monday.

A Brunswick family is loaning the historical piece to the Maine Forest and Logging Museum in Bradley.

It will be used as a tool to help students complete the log hauler at the museum, a process that's been slowed down for nearly three decades because of missing parts.
