This is the ultimate source for information and dramatic color photography of the West Side Flume and Logging Company Railroad. It is not a collection of film scraps scrounged from the some cutting room floor, but a work of devotion by motion picture professional, Glenn Beier.

This DVD shows you the West Side Logging Company as a real working railroad. See dozens of narrow gauge trains with empty log skeletons battling better than 5% grades up to the high camps. Then they are loaded with logs of gargantuan size. With the retainer set, the hand brakes tied down and wheels smoking the whole crew sweats to keep the train from getting away. See spindly trestles towering above the canyon walls, the dramatic, airborne ballet at the reloads, with ten ton logs poised for feather light placement, and the explosive water dumps. Catch the very last train ever to run on The West Side!

These tapes are superb! They transport the viewer right into the film without knowing it. The clarity of the sound and photography are wonderful qualities.
