Remarks & Notes 
Elk River Coal & Lumber shay #19 has five loads of logs en route from the lumber camp to Avoco, W. Va. on Nov. 24, 1961. They didn't build bridges, they just forded the creeks. A watchman rides the foot planks on the fireman's (and photographer's) side, watching for large debris.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
