Right behind the house is the Head Tide Station location - you can see the ROW in Photo 35 & 42 - most of the additional property does not include the ROW - but the property immediately behind the building does include the Station, main track and siding locatiobn

This is a property that has been flipped.  It sold approx. 3-4 years ago for around 90K.  From appearances, it looks like they put about 100k into it, so 190,000 total.  Not a bad rate of return if it goes in the 300's range.

This house was the topic of a September 2021 thread, which is currently in the "Members Only" area so I'm not going to link it. But here is the text of Ed's post in that thread:
Quote
House for sale in Alna adjacent to Head Tide station site:
https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2155-Alna-Rd-Alna-ME-04535/304658843_zpid/

Cheap ("only" $100,000!) but apparently is unfinished. No photos of the interior posted (yet.)

Note that the link in that quote will take you to the CURRENT listing, not the 2021 listing, but as you can see from Ed's message, it was listed at $100K.

If you want find the 2021 thread, its currently on page 4 of the "Members Only" thread list, and has the same title as this current thread.

When it was sold 2-3 years ago it was purchased by a local builder and his son as an investment property and now he is selling it.

It was in rough shape when he bought it- and I think he purchased it for under 100,000. They put a LOT of work in. Of note is that the small structure up front (of which  you can see interior photos in the listing) has been rumored to be of WW&F origin.

Nice house near Alna Center is coming up. It is adjacent to Averil Road (Alna Center access road), and you would count Steve P and Ed L as very nearby neighbors (you have been warned.)
https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1618-Alna-Rd-Alna-ME-04535/300142826_zpid/

"Only" $565,000.

I'll wait until 2 Head Tide Rd is available, then I'm all over it.
