Zenfolio | Joel Hawthorn's Railroad Photography | Simpson Railroad - A Line Through The Woods

A pictorial perspective of the Simpson Railroad which ran along a ten mile mainline on the Olympic Peninsula in Shelton, Washington. 1950's era diesel switchers, bumpy rails, lumber and log hauling through remote areas made this a one-of-a-kind operation, the last of its kind in the country. The book focuses mostly on the five years which followed the reopening of the line in 2010 after a one year closure and ends with the final day of operation before it disappeared into history July 1, 2015.  Published October 7, 2015.
