Logging Railroads of Humboldt & Mendocino Counties

Logging Railroads of Humboldt & Mendocino Counties

from 19.79

By Katy M. Tahja. "A century ago, Humboldt and Mendocino Counties had more than 40 railroads bringing logs out of the forest to mills at the water's edge. Redwood and tan oak bark were the two products moved by rail, and very little else was hauled other than lumberjakcs and an occasional picnic excursion for logger's families. Economic depressions and the advent of trucking saw railroads vanish like a puff of steam from the landscape." Member Price: $19.79
