Rayonier - The Last Steam Logger DVD
Maynard Laing ventured to Washington's Olympic Penninsula to capture the end of an era, with steam locomotives working the forests hauling out fresh log trains to the mill. The Rayonier mainline was 45 miles long, and featured several serviceable engines including articulated 2-6-6-2's. Two of them are seen on log trains including #14 and ex-Sierra Railway #38. In addition we are treated to 2-8-2 #90 in operation, and see some scenes at Railroad Camp, which was the engine facility for the steam locomotives. Mr. Laing has some very good footage here which includes operations in 1960 and 1961. There is coverage of the ceremonial last steam runs, and even a run of engine 90 on a special run for a TV crew. Mr. Laing not only preserved these images, but he also purchased engine #70, a 2-8-0, which is seen on a freight train being towed to a new home.
