Just look at the length of the hand saw they needed...



...and look at the size of the heavy duty axes...



Maneuvering the logs down the mountain to the train was a complex job...



Some of the logs were larger than the train engine...



A hollowed out log became the company's mobile office...



Hollowed out logs were also used to house and feed the crews...

I sometimes wonder how they did it. The trees were bigger and the tools were less powerful than todays.
The Smokey Mountains National Park used to belong to a logging Co., and many of the trails were rail lines that hauled the timber out. When you see where the tracks went and how high they were, up on the mountain, I'm just amazed at how they did it.
