Remarks & Notes 
Simpson Timber Railroad was built out of Shelton following Goldsboro Creek, a small river that the railway crossed several times. In this photo, a short train of empty cars is led along Goldsboro Creek by one of Simpson's logging service SW1200s. These locomotives boasted larger fuel tanks and dynamic brakes due to their careers haulling logs out of the Washington forests. By the time this photo was taken, the Simpson Railway was a shadow of it's former self, with only 10 miles of track in service. Now, the railroad is abandoned and severed in a few locations, the end of the last logging railroad in America.
