Memorialized by a famous Kinsey photograph, Railroad Camp was the last big stage for a steam-powered logging show in North America. Rayonier Incorporated’s Railroad Camp saw everything from little diamond-stacked wood-burners to geared Shays and huge Mallet locomotives, ending with yellow and green diesels in the 1970’s. Its cluster of unique and antique shops and numerous other museum-worthy buildings lasted right to the end, but were then torn down. This book shows them all, inside and out. “A place where boys grew up around the trains they later worked on.” 140 rare photos document a way of life in the woods that will never be seen again.
