That's a Nice Tie!
Tie-makers were in great demand during the construction of the railway and a good tie-maker could make more than a hundred in one day. The forest industry became the main enterprise in the valley after the railway was completed.

Themes List

Logging - Many men that were employed in the construction of the railway later moved to the valley to work in the logging camps.

Sawmills - The high quality cedar timber in the area transformed the small portable mill operations into large high-production sawmills.
