Shipping station and receiving point for the Molino Timber Company at Molino (Junction), on a branch of the Southern Pacific. The Molino Timber Company was incorporated in 1911 as a subcontracting company of the Loma Prieta Lumber Company. Molino used 30-inch narrow gauge cars to transport their lumber. These narrow gauge cars used the smaller rail seen between the standard rails of the left-hand track. The trestle on the far right led to the Loma Prieta Company's sawmill.
