Pacific Model Logger's Conference

I wanted to show a few more pictures from the conference. There was amazing the amount of logging equipment they have saved. Maybe not so amazing since the place is only located several miles from one of the largest timber operations on the west coast.

The radiator of an old Caterpillar tractor.

Name plate on a Willamette steam donkey.

Here is a a good subject for a model. This is an "Idaho Jammer". There are two V-8 engines on the front of this 1940's one-ton truck which was used to pull logs up onto the road. One of the engines was from a Caddilac.

This is a small portion of Camp Olson in 1948, located just a few miles from where the Conference was. There are apparently a few locomotives left in the area, which would be interesting to find.

Ken, the Willamette name plate was great. You're really getting into the logging history. Dad
