West Coast Railroad Logging Volume 1 DVD (Equipment and Techniques)
Geography and time have brought enormous changes to the art of transforming raw logs into useful lumber. Producer-archivist Don Olsen has spent over two decades amassing rare footage spanning 50 years, which detail logging by railroad on the West Coast - with a focus on equipment and techniques. His dream has become a reality with the release of this 2 volume set of DVD's.
Jim Sabol spearheaded a team who provided research on the subject. Filmmaker Warren Haack directed this unique program which is presented in 16x9 widescreen format with stereo sound.
Volume 1 covers the building of the railroad, felling, topping the spar tree, rigging, and the evolution of yarding. Footage of operations include the logging railroads of the Westside, Pickerling, Long-Bell at Keasey, Rayonier, Fruit Growers, Union Lumber, Weyerhaeuser, Crown-Williamette, Michigan-California, Holmes-Eureka, McCloud and Yosemite Sugar Pine. Rare footage includes new sequences from 16mm film never seen before.
