The South West timber industry relied upon steam engines of many types. Mills, whims, trains, haulers, traction engines, all were part of the bush scene, now looked upon in a romantic light. This is the story of steam in the forests, the men, the animals, and the forests by an old timberman. Maurice Southcombe died in 2000.
