Comments

A forest fire in 1945 destroyed many bridges and rolling stock of Hammond's woods logging railroads. They retooled with very large off-highway trucks and hauled the logs to Crannell over private roads partly built on old rail lines. They kept their railroad to Samoa and reloaded from the trucks to rail at Crannell.Boyle, Wm & Katie
