Loggers 8               2012

Maneuvering the logs down the mountain to the train was a complex job. One slip and a hunk of wood as big as a hotel is rolling your way!



Some of the logs were larger than the train engine. The other question that begs an answer is how did they get those logs up onto the train?



A hollowed out log became the company's mobile office.



A long time before anyone ever thought of a mobile home or an RV, hollowed out logs were also used to house and feed the logging crews. We are accustomed to our modern conveniences like electricity and gasoline powered chainsaws, and it is always such a mind-boggling experience to see how such monumental tasks were performed before these conveniences appeared on the scene.
