Gears in the Woods - Steam Logging in the West

See how steam and steel conquered mountain grades to move giant logs out of the woods of the West. Ten logging railroads from Arizona to British Columbia use every type of engine imaginable to get the wood out, from giant articulateds to Shay, Heislers and Climaxes. The trains climb up canyons and 5% to 6% to get to the high camps. Then, with logs piled high, the crew sweats to keep the brakes tied dwon so she won't run away as the load heads downhill. This sweeping survey gives a bird's eye veiw of an era when the tall timber of the west was moved by steam.
