First printed in 1966, this fourth printing is revised and enlarged.
Close to California's mother lode country, the Michigan-California Lumber Company operated for many years with an interesting combination of narrow and standard gauge railroading. There was even an ingenious cable bridge over a deep gorge which carried complete railroad cars of logs. The machinery of the company included steam donkeys, track autos, steam tractors and, of necessity, a snowplow.
