    This seems to pertain more to modern truck logging:

    oops, how'd that get in there?

    I did find some general instructions:

    Travelling on logging roads - rules of the road
    These roads are heavily used by industrial traffic. The best time to travel is before 6 a.m and after 6 p.m. or on weekends. However, smaller companies often work outside of normal hours, including on weekends. They do not always provide a schedule but are required to post signs.

    If you must travel during working hours (from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday - through Friday), it is essential that you check in with the appropriate logging company:

    * On Graham Island, check with Weyerhaeuser at their head office in Juskatla (call 250-557-6810 for information).

    * On Moresby Island, check at the JS Jones (former Timber West) Office in Sandspit before driving from Alliford Bay to Moresby Camp or making other use of logging roads (call 250-637-5323 for information).

    At all times when travelling on logging roads:

    * drive with headlights on
    * observe the 50 km/h speed limit
    * stay alert for posted signs and indications of oncoming traffic
    * obey all posted signs

    Do they haul logs on the road trains in the Land Down Under?

    Sorry to go with an old post but I have an old logging sign from the Emporium/Grasse RiverRR in upstate NY. It says something along the lines of "Beware horses in the road next 5 miles. Emporium Lumber Co.". I can tell you exacty what it says over next summer, it is in storage and I am in school til then.

    Will do but I live far away from the storage locker. I have gone back to school on the other side of the country. The earliest I can get to it is the summer. Sorry. I will post a picture in this forum.
