In order for Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes railroad passengers and freight to make connections at Farmington for destinations beyond, a combination of rails and switches was established. It was necessary for narrow gauge rails to cross and merge with standard gauge rails to get the smaller equipment to the station and freight yard. Occasionally you could see engines and rolling stock of both sizes at the station together.
Here the S.R.R.L. engine is visible beyond the larger Maine Central engine.
