Synopsis
Chronicles the waning years of the logging industry and the equipment and operations of the railroads that served it. From the late 1800s through the 1950s, West Virginia was one of the nation's largest producers of lumber. This book covers the unique geared locomotives that moved that lumber including the Shay, Climax and Heisler, designed to traverse the sharp curves and uneven track of mountain railways. Includes information on special logging cars, cranes and other equipment.
