Travel deep into mountain logging country in California, British Columbia and West Virginia to witness these locos dwarfed by the tall trees they bore out of the woods, fording streams and crossing trestles. Plenty of newly released footage of vintage, working rail. Some of these locos still operate today on scenic lines—a must for all fans of steam logging!
Cinematography by railroad greats Glenn Beier, Guy Brant, Mac Owen, and August A. Thieme.
