Looks a good model and although use of a crane to to a transfer was not that common, it looks like a steam version of how St Regis loaded cars at their reload above Klikitat. I have one poorish photo in my collection, but it does show the crane and the deck of logs waiting the transfer.

Hello Eric,

 Maybe this gives you an idea for the transfer:

 I once was, like you, looking for something to load logs from railroad onto cars. Reason was that i did not want a pod, mill ...etc on the layout (not enough space).

 My explanation would have been the old mill does not exist anymore and trucks would have to bring the logs to the mill, plausible but not logic but as I go freelance i don't care.

 Finally i just put a steam crane next to a log dump and the mill is on the other end of the pond, not located on the layout.
