Why are there train tracks heading to a small industrial plant for?

There is a two lane road and a main train track going beside of it.

There is a train track coming off of the main train track going through the two lane road and heading towards an industrial plant. The plant is small and isn't a train station. It hasn't been there long.

There are the Railroad signs with barricades on the two lane road where the train track crosses it to that plant.

Why is that plant there and what is its purpose for?

    Because either currently or at some point in time in the past that plant transported their product by rail.

    Well duh. If something goes one way in or out via train then something else has to go one way in or out too. It could be a chemical plant, bringing in something, making something else and then sending it out by truck. Or it could be a grain elevator where they bring in crops by truck then ship them out by train. They do have a sign, go read it.

      There is no visible sign other than the gravel road to the plang and a gate saying 'restricted area, do not enter'

    And how are we are supposed to know "Why is that plant there and what is its purpose for"? There is absolutely zero useful information in your post for someone to answer other than just guessing which you could do better since you live there.

    Obviously, the plant either bring in supplies by rail or take products out by rail (or both) or wants the ability to do so.

    Because trains used to deliver supplies there and it is too expensive to remove the tracks.

    It may have been an unloading stop for a previous business in that building. It's not unusual.

    Why do train tracks exist anywhere? To transport freight and/or people from one place to another. In this case, it's probably freight. As far as why that plant is there, I have no idea. Maybe someone thought it was a good location.

    They likely use the railway for distribution of their goods.
