wida maker trestle

Former UP H-16-44s head the first section of the Gready Logger across the Widamaker trestle.  The trestle received the name after its lighter predecessor was undermined by an unusual spring flood.  An entire unsuspecting log train made it across until the caboose, filled with loggers returning home for a weekend off, was on the trestle.  That was when the supports chose to collapse, trapping all occupants in the submerged debris.

meet at camp 2

The second section of the Gready Logger, headed by a pair of MP 15s, waits at Camp 2 for the first section, headed by a pair of ex UP H-16-44s, to pass.
