Review of Complete West Side Story by Sunday River Productions

 5 of 5 (1)

This shows you the West Side Flume and Logging Company Railroad when it was really a working railroad. You see dozens of narrow gauge trains with empty log skeletons battling better than 5% grades to the high camps and then loaded with logs of garganuan size, the retainer set, the hand brakes tied down and the wheels smoking as the whole crew sweats to keep the train from getting away. The spindly trestles towering above the canyon walls, the dramatic, airborne ballet at the reloads, with ten ton logs poised for feather light placement, the explosive water dumps. Even the very last train ever to run on The West Side!

This is a work of devotion by a motion picture professional, Glenn Beier. It is not a collection of film scraps scrounged from the some cutting room floor. This is the ultimate source for information and dramatic, color photography of the West Side.
