July 1961. Rayonier 90 heads a log train southbound from a loading point near Quinault to the dump at Hoquiam. The specific location of this picture is lost in my fading memory, but this is probably near Neilson and just south of where the current Moclips highway crosses the right of way. Rayonier operated the last major steam powered logging railroad in the Pacific Northwest with a mix of power that included several 2-6-6-2 mallets. I made one quick visit in the summer of 1960 but many of the details of the operation are lost off my personal hard drive. No. 90 survives and is now on static display at Garibaldi, OR. My wife and I recently drove between Hoquiam and Quinault and I could find no evidence that a railroad ever existed, it rains a lot on the Olympic Peninsula and the trees and brush grow quickly. But I did learn that Humptulips means "hard to pole" in the local Quinault language, referring to the difficulty of poling their canoes along the Humptulips River.
