Strong Historical Society

The junction at Strong was tied-up for some time when engine #20 from the Sandy River and Rangeley Lakes jumped the rails of the switch and stopped in the gore between the lines. The points of the switch were not set properly and opened as the engine entered from the Phillips line, causing it to go off the rails between the north-bound line at the station and the Kingfield line.
