» Pole Road Log Cart Relocation2009
On May 9, 2008 the Society moved the Pole Road Log Cart a short distance from it's former location on the cut-off trail to be closer to the main trail.
The cart has two sets of wheels connected be a twenty foot 10" x 10" beam. It was last used on a logging show above Chippewa Bay, where it towed logs over pole roads using a Steam Donkey.
Bob Miller in his front-end-loader first got the display's new Pole Logs in place. These replaced the old ones from the 1985 installation - (one of the trail's first artifacts)-

Bob next dismantled the old display, first by removing the old logs it was carrying
Project leader Rudi Van Zwaijj with Jack McCuish and Ken Gordon behind.

Second one... oops rotten through - no wonder we are refurbishing it!
