Remarks & Notes 
A Simpson conductor sitting in the 1201 watches us pass by in the nine-hunnert while switching carloads of lumber to interchange. With the closing of the mills in Shelton, Washington there will soon be no purpose for the railroad to operate, and these scenes will pass into history. The owner, Simpson Lumber, LLC, has sold the mills in Shelton to Sierra Pacific Industries who plan on shutting everything down by June, removing Mills 3 and 5 and erecting a new "state-of-the-art" sawmill at the Mill 3 site in Shelton by 2017. In the meantime the railroad will be "re-purposed", corporate speak for "no plans for use in the near future".

Based in Shelton, Washington, this private operation has hauled logs and lumber for its parent timber company Simpson Lumber (Timber) since 1890. Here you will be able to easily research all of my STC images on this site.
