Description: This conveyer was located on Baisley Road on the Québec side of the border. Logs were unloaded on a haul-up. This conveyer made piles of wood near the Madawaska River in Québec territory. This wood was harvested in the Green River forest. A private road was used by trucks up to here since it was faster and cheaper for the Fraser Company.
