Weyerhaeuser Logging Locomotives

Early on logging was done by rail. Locomotives came steaming in to pick up the lumber, like these Weyerhaeuser Timber Company locomotives. If you want to see some of these old trails up close,  Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad has live demonstrations — on the rail, not picking up logs. For a fee you an jump on and get a taste of what it must have been like.
