    Gears in the Woods DVD

    See every kind of steam locomotive ever conceived to haul logs: Shays, Heislers , Climaxes, Articulated rod and Rigid frame Engines. Ten different logging companies, from Arizona to British Columbia, Canada comprise this sweeping survey of working life in the tall timber of the West:

    • Southwest Forest Industries (Arizona)

    • West Side Flume and Logging (California)

    • The Feather River (California)

    • The Klickitat or St. Regis Paper (Washington State)

    • The Rayonier (both lines on Olympic Peninsula, WA)

    • MacMillan-Bloedel (Vancouver Island, BC)

    • Hillcrest Lumber (British Columbia, Canada)

    • Osborne Bay Wharf (Vancouver Island, BC)

    • Yreka Western (California)

    • McCloud River (California)

    You'll see the Feather River Shays high on S-curved trestles, getting a run at a 5 1/2% grade with 25 degree curves, and the fireworks pin-wheel of Climaxes tackling 6% grades on the Hillcrest. Heislers dance around the log dump like daddy long legs spiders. Climb in to the cab as Rayonier Mallet #8 heads for tall timber and returns with logs of Bunyan size. Two segments on the McLeod operation: first, a double-headed fan trip with an SP daylight consist and - in the 10 foot drifts of February - a sparkling vignette in brilliant sunshine with Mt Shasta towering behind.
