Take a look at the paper books are printed on. The story of how it got from the forest to the consumer is an exciting tale of an industry and the railroads that serve it. From buzzing saws in the forest to the hustle and bustle of your local lumber yard, to the thunder of high-speed printing presses, the forest products industry has long captivated the imagination.
First, you'll see what logging was like when steam was king and highways were few and far between. Loggers lived and worked a rough and tumble life deep in the woods. Their tales have found their way into North American folklore.
Next, you'll travel deep into the forests where logs are harvested. You'll see growling machinery hauling raw logs from the forests to trackside log reloads and pulpwood landings. You'll chase loaded log trains and watch as they're unloaded at mills. Then, you'll tour the mills where logs become lumber and paper.
Finally, learn how to add mills to a model railroading layout. Get tips from industry insiders and railroaders. Learn how to add these buildings to a layout using easy-to-build structure and rolling stock kits. Equipment, building, rolling stock and realistic operations are all covered.
