• Short Summary

    Lumber train is demonstrated.

  • Description

    United States of America.

    Introductory intertitle reads: "Ever seen a real timber train? Here's one in Washington Woods, where men are men and railways two yards wide."

    L/S of a strange vehicle moving towards the camera - a lumber train presumably. The wheels move along two tracks but they look like metal cores without rubber around the outside. The train passes very close to the camera. Point of view shot from on board the lumber train as it moves along the tracks. Point of view shot of the wheels as they trundle along. L/S of the vehicle pulling a huge stack of massive tree trunks - pretty impressive.
