Patterson's mill in Northampton is almost ready to commence operations--as soon as the Carleton Railway completes the Northampton Subdivision trackage from South Newbridge. The millyard is piled high with logs (the woods around Northampton have been picked clean) but the mill will rely on the railway to access logs from western N.B. and northern Maine, and to ship finished lumber products to market. The small Carleton County community of Northampton has never been served by rail before, and promises to provide a steady source of traffic for the business-savvy railway.
