1 McKnight, George A Sawlogs on steel rails: A story of the 45 years of railway operations in the logging camps of the Port Alberni area
British Columbia [Port Alberni Seniors' History Committee 1995 0969944802 / 9780969944805 First Hardcover Edition Hardcover Fine 
0969944802 Over one inch thick. "The first major sawmill in British Columbia was the Port Alberni Anderson mill of 1860/1864, which was closed because it ran out of logs. Manager Gilbert Sproat advised the owners that to get logs to the mill they would need to build a railway. The owners refused so the mill was closed. It was to be almost fifty years until the first logging railway was built in 1912. The last train of logs was delivered to MacMillan Bloedel's Franklin River Camp A in 1957. In the intervening period more than thirty locomotives operated on hundreds of miles of railway grade in the area. Thousands of men were involved in a large number of logging camps, big and small. This 45 year period of railway logging is the subject of our story." - from back board. Abundantly illustrated in black and white. Glossy illustrated boards. Crisp, clean and unmarked with very light signs of handling. Minor cigarette smell. Excellent copy.
