Judging from the size of the community, this was the employer in town. The mill is at the end of a 20-mile branchline from Bangor, and judging from the one other industry with a spur off the branch that had no cars in the Bing view, 100% of the traffic on the branch is the mill. By the number of cars on various tracks in and around the mill they appeared to generate a lot of traffic, too.

This is a massive blow to the MEC/B&M. That mill easily contributed to 1/3 of the carloads moving out of Maine. :/
