Galeton, PA - The Pennsylvania Lumber Museum is a recreated turn-of-the 20th-century lumber mill and camp with a visitors center and themed exhibitions, operated by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission (PHMC) in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Lumber Museum Associates (PALMA).

Sloat Lumber Co - Sn3 logging on a budget..
This website is about modeling the logging industry and its connected railroads as it developed in the Pacific Northwest in the late 19th century. It is mainly a source of ideas, and I hope inspiration, as my own modeling is in its early stages. Since my modeling is on a strict budget the emphasis is on kitbashing opportunities etc. If you can afford PBL brass good for you, but you will not find it here.. by Lennart Elg

Swedish River Logging
I came across a 1950's book with some wonderful photos of Swedish logging of that era, which I want to share. You will find many familiar scenes, which should come as no surprise given the role of Scandinavian loggers in the Pacific Northwest.

Tales from Grandpa Augustus
The history of logging in the Pacific Northwest is an epic saga of giant trees and the rugged souls whose lives revolved around them. These legendary adventurers, mainly Swedes, conquered the ancient forests with only their wits, their axes and saws, their ingenious contraptions, and their indomitable will. They were said to be serious about only two things--work and beer; beyond that, they were occasionally known to blur--no, demolish--the line between myth and reality, giving rise to some of the most outrageous and hilariously tall tales in the history of folklore.

Here then, as a special treat for WoodCentral's esteemed visitors, is a collection of logging tales that have been preserved for posterity by Forrest Addy--friend, expert machinist and frequent contributor to WoodCentral. Forrest's great-grandfather Augustus was a real character--at times a cobbler, logger, millwright and mayor--in the early days of Port Orchard, Washington. Told in Forrest's inimitable style, Augustus's stories are sure to amuse, delight and entertain you. Enjoy them!
