Railroads and the logging industry have been tied together since the mid-1800's. For over 100 years, railroads dedicated strictly to logging snaked into forests from the Pacific Northwest to New England and the Deep South, hauling logs from temporary camps to sawmills along rivers and coastlines. This book traces the history of the timber industry and its railroads, following advances in logging methods and equipment, specialized rolling stock, and the development of geared stem locomotives.
