Rayonier

To pioneers of the late nineteenth century, timber was as good as gold, and one of the biggest logging "shows" in the Pacific Northwest began when Alex Polson came onto the scene in the 1900s. Polson Brothers Logging Company eventually became part of ITT Rayonier, a company that rostered a variety of steam-powered logging equipment. This is the story of Rayonier's logging-railroading operations, featuring numerous photos and a complete steam and diesel locomotive roster.

This hardbound book details steam at its height, when trains ran daily out of Railroad Camp near Hoquiam, Washington, and through the treacherous Clallam Branch, near the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The Rayonier logging story is told in text, train crew stories that "tell it like it was," and 233 black and white action and roster shots of men and equipment.

Railway Depots, Stations & Terminals

A unique book about some of the finest, most interesting, and most famous railway stations. Contemporary photographs, historic images, and postcard views provide an in-depth look at the architectural gems that dot the railroad landscape.

The railway station has a special role in people's lives. Stations have served as the gateway to the world's great cities and the point of contact for remote towns. The inherent nature of the station is different from that of other buildings; it is an entrance, an exit, a place to rest, and a stop along the way.
It can be the first thing a traveler sees and the last memory of a favorite city. Facing both the street and the tracks, the station is naturally a point of departure and a face of the city it serves.

Brian Solomon, one of today's most accomplished railway historians, leads you through a one-of-a-kind exploration of the history and architecture of depots, stations, and terminals.
