Logging Railroad Branch

Inspirational Photos of Logging Operations in Washington State

I've been working with a client on an N-Scale layout over the past several months that includes a small logging branch. We are tweaking the plans now, and he is trying to firm up ideas for logging scenes. These are a couple of inspirational pictures I just sent him that show a cable hoist system for negotiating a steep incline in order to get the log cars closer to the action. These images are from a great book that I highly recommend, Logging Railroads in Skagit County by Dennis Blake Thompson, Seattle: Northwest Short Line, 1989.
