Wisconsin Logging Railroads
The purpose of this page is to provide information on an often overlooked aspect of railroading.
While not as thrilling as their western counterparts, logging railroads in the State of Wisconsin
still hold much interest. After all, it is the state where both Frederick Weyerhauser and Edward Hines got their start.
What I will attempt to do is to provide a master list of all Wisconsin logging railroads including
basic information such as dates of operation, (when known) location, and guage. I will then attempt to
have some individual pages for some of the more interesting operations.
If anybody has any comments, questions or ideas feel free to contact me. Any information would be helpful.

Trying to go to a new more "user friendly" and easier to read format.
Bayfield County (North) edited and converted to new format.
In the Future: I plan to add a page listing rod locomotives used on Wisconsin Logging Railroads. This is progressing
rathers slowly. I'm not sure how I want to so this. It is also a big mess.
