I took this in a logging camp reconstruction in Minnesota. Thought it may be of intrest to someone doing that part of the contry in winter. Also have a picture of a water sled.

shamus; you ever get that much snow?
With your layout I would hate to shovel it out!!!

What an ingenious idea to get those logs out. An old fashioned version of todays log skidders.

Goatte my friend, I have such a rough underlying terrain that I would need one of those to get my little people to work on time.:D

Most of the pine loggers of the west where from the middlewest, snows different, ice roads just didn't work for westerners mostly.
The Red River Lumber Company was overcome by deep western snow, something they had never faced before.
Mississippi has pine, but no snow! And the trees, pecker poles at best, growing on ground cotten sucked years ago!
And Best bought the patten for that tracklayer and then sold it to Holt, then they became CAT.
