Remarks & Notes 
Heisler Locomotive Works 2-Truck Heisler

The fastest of the geared steam locomotive designs, yet has the same low-speed hauling ability of other geared locomotives such as the Shay and Climax. The Heieler is giving mills real protection against the "tie-up" for want of logs. In the rough service which log hauling usually is, the Heisler stands up better than any other locomotive used for this work - according to the men who have "tried them all". Simple design, fewer parts, and consequently, bigger and stronger parts! Our catalog will assure your mill a steady supply of logs. Drop us a line for this book; you will read it with interest.

Pace and pan shots of trains. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
