    In the last few days I have watched a couple of movies that I think will be of interest to you Loggers. Both have some very interesting shots of logging equipment.

    In the Hoppy movie they have what appears to be a steam or compressed air crosscut saw sat on a tripod affair.

    In God’s Country they have some great shots of a Shay at work. It also shows a dry log slide.

    Thanks for the "heads-up." I found this movie data base a couple of years ago, and it is good for getting the details on movies. Link to site follows:

    Both records list shooting locations, plus much more.

    Check out "Big Trees" starring Kirk Douglas.

    Redwoods, trains, fightin', shootin' and it's in color.
