I found this topic and brought it back up.
I have done research and found the necesary equipment for a logging Industry.
But not all of it and I could use some help.

If you are talking about the Sweet Home branch in Oregon that tied into the main line at Albany check out the SP&S Historical Society.org

The SP&S had several logging railroads feeding traffic to it. In addition to the 4th and 5th subdivisions of the Oregon Electric (the Santiam branches in the Sweet Home, Ore., area), the Portland Division (Astoria Line), the Oregon Trunk, and the Goldendale Branch also had logging lines that interchanged traffic.

Trying to describe logging operations in a brief space is impossible. Get a copy of the book "SP&S" by Ed Austin and Tom Dill for more information on SP&S and its logging connections.
