Abstract

"In some of the pine regions of the Ozark Mountains, a considerable portion of the country is rolling and rough, comprising a succession of hills and hollows. The most efficient method of logging such a tract is obtained by locating the logging road so as to secure a down grade haul for the logs, with consequent up grade return for the empty cars. This necessitates locating the main line of the railroad along the principal creek, and then laying spurs up the different tributary creeks as they are met. Such a procedure requires much crossing and re-crossing of creeks and therefore the building of bridges, which may constitute a very important item in the coast of the road"--page 3.
