does anyone know where i can find info on logging operations? i have never seen a logger railroad but i'm trying to model one (freelanced). sierra west here gave me some info on sawmill ops but i would like more.
There is a ton of info on the net (google search) and a great thread on this forum -
that would be a place to start - also if you could narrow your question down a bit, era, geography etc.... maybe someone will have a specific link
Brett suggested I mention this site – good photographs of prototypical logging/ rail equipment from a museum site up here in British Columbia (I say up here because most people on the forum seem to be from Down There or Down Under). Much of the equipment is deliberately unrestored:
In particular there’s a couple good pictures of some beat up old CATs, very similar to the one in the Tractor Repair kits
Drawings of McLean mill in BC including machinery - for reference

Here's some good
Photos of same mill, which I think has been the basis for some
Kits in the past:
Here is a link to a great video about logging.
Hi Guy's I have some old pictures around so I thought that I would share them with you.
Check out the smoke jacks on the engine house.
The load of marble is from Proctor Vt almost everything in Washington DC came out of there.
Great pics. Thanks for sharing these.
Thank You for looking Carl.
Carl, thanks for sharing the pics. Very interesting about the Marble! Would like to have seen the mining area when I was there in 69.
Carl, these pictures will be a great reference for me in my layout. Thanks. Phil
You are quite welcome there young man.
Bill the place was still a working mine back then to bad that you missed it.
It would have been great to see Carl! I enjoyed the pictures.
