Remarks & Notes 
The Last American Logger: Some trains may haul logs, but if you get technical (and railfans often do) Shelton, Wash. is the last place in America to see a traditional logging railroad at work. On the morning of Sept. 16, 2013, Simpson Lumber Company No. 1201, an SW1200, leads the daily log train from Shelton north about 10 miles to Dayton, where the logs are sorted at the dry yard. Two more SW1200 were on the rear of this train as it works through the woods in typical Pacific Northwest weather. For more information about this interesting little railroad, check out RailPictures.net contributor Joel Hawthorn's fantastic new book "Simpson Railroad: A Line Through The Woods" at blurb.com.
