And burning logs to do it, while going over a log trestle.

Sure, what else would a logging operation burn but wood for a steam boiler. Just like the coal trains burning coal. Using just the slash would provide plenty of fuel for the engine, cook house, and any other heat needs of the logging operation.

Interesting, these cross logs aren't whole trees, but sections of trunks. But the ones that show they are the end of the trunk show how much had to be cut before the trunk snapped off.

I'm impressed that they can use logs of different diameters and get a finished trestle that is level enough for a train to go over it.

I was thinking more of the wheel arrangement on the engine.

Looks funny.

It's a 50 ton Climax locomotive.

A Climax locomotive is a type of geared steam locomotive in which the two steam cylinders are attached to a transmission located under the center of the boiler. This transmits power to driveshafts running to the front and rear trucks.
