Lumber: Its Manufacture and Distribution - Ralph Clement Bryant
Posted by railandsail on Thursday, July 25, 2019 4:58 PM

I'm investigating logging subjects to help with developing a logging scene on my new layout. I ran across this book source that goes WAY BEYOND the info I need, but it is a very significant resource.

....a very comprehensive book about Timber,...and its a free download

The NMRA has been selling its own reprint of this book for some years now.

Walthers's book on lumber/timber is also a good one; out of print at Walthers but not an uncommon find at swap meets.

I find that books that combine industries with railroads to be the most interesting.  As modernity advances, these types of books need to keep up, IMO.

I have problems with PM's on this site, as they do not accept Firefox which is what I use all the time. Otherwise I have to jump thru all kinks of other hoops to utilize an alternative internet provider software.

The best way to contact me is thru regular good old traditional email,..
