Description
Once done by horses, the steam loaders made loading logs onto railroad cars much easier. The horse-drawn piece of equipment shown on the right is a "big wheel." The big axle allowed it to be driven over a pile of logs. Chains were used to suspend the logs from the axle for transporting.
