History of Logging {Catalogs & Photos} on DVD

Willamette Iron Works was a general foundry and machine business established in 1865 in Portland, Oregon, originally specializing in the manufacture of steamboat boilers and engines. In 1904, the company changed its name to Willamette Iron and Steel Works, under which name it operated continually until its close in 1990.

The Willamette Iron & Steel Yard also made steam locomotives for logging companies in the Pacific Northwest, and by the 1970s, the Yard expanded into turbine units for a powerhouse for the Grand Coulee Dam.

The works was very busy during both World Wars I and II, building small naval auxiliaries, minesweepers, patrol craft, submarine chasers, and non-self-propelled lighters. Between the wars, the shipyard concentrated on building small commercial vessels.

During the 1920s, the company manufactured a geared steam locomotive known as the "Willamette", a Shay-type locomotive for use in logging operations in Washington and Oregon. These locomotives were of a unique design and are of great interest to old train buffs.

This 1925 catalog represents this companies line of logging and hoisting machinery.

Also included is a wonderful collection of vintage logging photos from the 1910's and 1920's, offering a rare pictorial glimpse of the men and machines of the early logging industry.
