The loggers have been very busy. Still, it's a very pretty lake.

Here we find the rough cut Mill-B site

Cascade Timber Co.


Cascade Timber Company is a thriving subsidiary of the PC&E.

The largest part of PC&E on-line traffic is generated from the Cascade Timber Company mills. The logging outfit employs its own locomotives and rolling stock on the branchline. Vintage steam engines still work the hill and this is a favorite spot for rail enthusiasts from all over the world to spot these ancient beasts at work.

Lumber and forest by-products as well as plywood and export logs are picked up for movement in both directions.
