A Glance Backward

Rolland Meyers has been hitching rides on the STMA for the last 20 years and has filmed the line extensively. He's sent some photos our way to show how things looked in the past when long log trains chugged out of the back country. Chances are, many of the cars pictured have already been dismantled for scrap. Thanks to Rolland, however, we now have one of the historic cars for the HPG. Next week, Stan Patterson and the W&I Railway will hook the log car to the Bennett shipment and bring it up the line to the depot. Hopefully we can get some photos of that.
