For railroad fans, this book is a "must have". After several failed attempts to remove timber from the lower Sierra Nevada Mountains near Georgetown, California, the problems were solved with an efficient logging railroad system and a cable way over the American River to deliver rough sawn lumber to the planing mill in Camino. This book is an excellent history of the use of railroads to transport commodities from remote places. It contains beautiful photographs and is well documented. The book has been out of print for a long time but it is worth almost any price for the serious rail road buff.

Book Description R Robb Ltd. softcover. Condition: New. First printed in 1966, this fourth printing is revised and enlarged.

The machinery of the company included steam donkeys, track autos, steam tractors and, of necessity, a snowplow.
