Complete history of West Virginia's largest logging railroad which was also its last, operating 1912-1972. It operated Shay, Heisler, and Climax geared steam locomotives and in the last 15 years also had diesels. The book covers the locomotives in detail, the cars and the operations as well as background on the company and its owners, the Raine family. Photos show all aspects of the operation and the people involved. Meadow River was at one time the largest producer of hardwood lumber in the world. Some of its equipment has survived to operate on tourist lines.
