Steam in the Redwoods

Steam in the Redwoods


The most boisterous and exciting railroading times in Humboldt County redwood logging was the age of steam when donkeys and locomotives were used in the railroad camp. These were the days of big husky loggers in big tough logging operations. Steam in the Redwoods is a documented historical-pictorial book of the redwood logging railroads of the past and is a fascinating and detailed look at over 25 narrow gauge logging railroads that once ran through the redwood forest of northern California. The text brings the logging camps, the screech of the sawmills and vitality of the industry back to life. Profusely illustrated throughout with vintage black and white photos of the trains, logging camps, and even maps, this book also includes rosters of all the locomotives used in the logging of the redwoods. A must-have book for the redwood logging and railroad enthusiast, this book weighs in at nearly 3 pounds! Hardbound w/dustjacket: 224 pages: 8.75 x 11.25"
