Wonderful photos are on every page. Lumbering and the steam era of railroads including locomotives, loaders, and tower skidders and their operation are documented.

The construction of the second largest logging railroad in West Virginia is explored.

Detailed maps of three eras of work on Snowshoe lands showing relations to the resort’s facilities, numerous photographs, lists of locomotives, and drawings throughout.

Deike is a leading authority on West Virginia logging history and a past president of Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Assc.
