Lumber Train

Lumberjacks stand around a steam locomotive that was converted from wheel to track propulsion, 1912. During the late 19th century and the early 20th century, small steam locomotives were pivotal in hauling logs out of the woods to lumber mills after teams of horses hauled the wood from the forest to the spur tracks. This train was unusual, and its modifications gave the lumber company a much more flexible and efficient means of transportation.
