Logging and Lumber Railways in Ontario
Abitibi Paper Co. Ltd. 70 Retired 1978.70-ton Shay Lima #3298 2/26 Iroquois Falls, July 2004.
This is a rare look at a long-gone
pioneer era of early logging railways and lumber operations before trucks and
changing markets. Many of these operations had little or nothing published about
them and photographs are hard to come by. The earliest included tramways, pole
roads and animals along with home made engines, steam locomotives, both geared
and rod including "dinky" engines.
