CFP 303 heading for Beaver Cove with the loads. We are mile 1.8 Elk River Trestle, this trestle was by- passed shortly after this photo was taken.
A photo of the Crane that was at Woss for years, it has been replaced with a newer one, this one was cut up for scrap at Woss.

I am not sure what caboose this one is, I think at one time two were close to being the same. It is different than the  one I posted earlier, the window frames are a different color plus one has bars on the window the other does not.

Wow! I love the angle on this one!
 
Good Morning Chris, glad you like it, things sure have changed up there. The last time I was up in the Woss area you had a hard time seeing the bridge because of the tree growth. I understand Highways have been working on the banks of the river recently so they may have removed some of the trees..

CFP 4804 before it used the 304 crosses Steele Creek with a string of empties heading south.

 A few photo's for this evening. CFP 302 at Camp A Reload, this is unusual, 302 works out of Woss Camp on the south end of the line and switches out the loads at Siding 4 which is south of Camp A.

Aug 1984 we are at the East Fork Trestle Mile 2.8 with a train of empties going south. All the trestle's on WFP line are built from steel replacing the beautifull wood trestle pictured here.

Great pictures!  
 
Two questions:
 
#1:  You sure those are from January? Seems to be a lot of leaves on the bushes and small trees... buttercups on the ground...  
 
and more importantly...
 
#2:  What is it about the Englewood Railway that has allowed it to remain a viable train based logging operation and not be overtaken by trucks? Is it the terrain?  Is it the simple fact that it is there?  Some other factor?

Yes, I wondered about the date too, it is what is on the slide, I would usual get them processed right after a trip. The ones that have day right on them that is the date. Sorry I was not better at filing back in those years. I wish I had done a better job. Some of the location even are difficult to remember now. Sidewinder may be able to help us, we were together on a lot of the trips to the Nimpkish Valley. He did a lot better job of keeping track of dates etc.
There are probably quite a few reasons for the railway still be there, I guess it comes down to it is still the cheapest way to do it.

Leaving Camp A kept coming to mind because of the hills in the background.  The road crossing didn't seem right, though.  So, I went on a hunt to find proof.
Didn't a crew member toss something to you one day?  Hopefully, that guy is not shaking his fist at you!

Yes you are right we are just around the corner from the spur to the reload,  there used to be a road into the pit that's there. He thru a ball out to the kids as I remember.  
Anyhow the only person that used to get into trouble was you. ha ha Thanks for the help.

I have been on this forum for years and never seen this thread... all I can say is WOW. I never would have believed a railroad like this could still not only just exist but thrive in this modern age. Excellent photos and descriptions, now I can justify modelling a logging railroad with modern equipment.

The same train is in the photo in Reply #312 on page 16.  That makes the date Oct 10, 1984.

Thanks Sidewinder, I wish now that I had been more on the ball and had dated mine, plus had put the location on them also. Here we are at Maquilla Creek Bridge at mile 50 with CFP 302 heading south to pick up more loads.

A day in Aug 84, we are between East Fork and the Tsulton River. After waiting at the Tsulton River Trestle we started to walk back to the East Fork Trestle and our truck. CFP 301 drifting downgrade surprised us at this curve between  
mile 3 & 4.
