Going back again to the BTS mill I do think the missing part is the green chain. The transfer at the rear of the mill could easily feed one and nearly all rail served mills I have seen have this feature. From the green chain the graded lumber would go the the drying yard/dry kilns or maybe further processing.
The attached is from the Brown Lumber text book and shows a generic lay out.
I will post a couple of scans  next of the McNary mill in Arizona on the Apache Railway.
