About this title


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. Illustrated throughout with vintage black and white photos of the trains as well as the camps and scenery around them. With rosters of the steam locomotives (by company) and maps. Includes bibliography. 224 pages.


Mention railroads and railroading and most people think of those classic old photos of the iron horse or the modern gleaming zephyrs of steel and chrome, or the long connected chains of box cars passing clickty clack through the American landscape. But the most boisterous and exciting railroading times in Humboldt County (CA) 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 preserves another chapter of the vanishing West. 221 photographs and 5 maps, and Locomotive Rosters illustrate this exciting historical and pictorial presentation of redwood logging railroads. -- Midwest Book Review
