Review of Gears in the Woods Steam Logging in the West by Sunday River Productions

Every kind of steam locomotive ever conceived to haul logs: Shays, Heislers , Climaxes, Articulated rod and Rigid frame Engines. 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 versions of 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. Running time 64 minutes.
