Looking north past the Bradford L. Beal home, through the mill yard of C. V. Starbird lumber mill, the train of the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes Railroad follows the rails south toward the station.
Though very convenient to have rail service running through the mill yard, employees often had to drop what they were doing to run trackside to extinguish small blazes caused by sparks from the boiler or wheels of the "Iron Horse."
