Brownville & Brownville Junction.....

....Maine, a town that's all about railroads and slate,
along with scenic views and a river walk that's great;
slate from the quarries, all closed now,
roofed many buildings in New England, all said wow.

The Canadian National, Bangor and Aroostook, and more..
..join together here to transfer goods from shore to shore;
the CN cuts miles and miles off it's tracks coming through Maine,
for West to East shipments of petroleum products, lumber and grain.

Top: The Norcross Quarry - back in the day.
Middle: A New Brunswick Southern train passes through.
Bottom: A Canadian National (old CNP Colors) at the Junction.
