EXCAVATING A LEGACY

An Artifact Identified... Follow up to: 'A Black Bear Story'

When exploring the 1913 burn site of the English Logging camp in March, we hauled out a 50 lbs of artifact that could not at the time be identified…

AN ENDURING LEGACY UNEARTHED.... Months later, it was identified.

“I was able to identify the piece you hauled out of the camp. It was a fun revelation from a blown up picture in my house. The “Shay” locomotive in the picture ran this hill along with a “Climax” locomotive. The “Cl 712” Marking you can see on the brake shoe might be indicating it was from the Climax.  I’m thankful to have this piece. To know how crucial it was makes it all the more special.” - Flint Benson
