The first Sierra logging railroad was a four-mile, narrow gauge line built in 1889 by the Madera Flume and Trading Company which exhausted most of its supply of timber in the mid 1890s and by 1898 its business was suspended. A successor organization, the Madera Sugar Pine Company was formed in 1899 and operated southwest of Yosemite National Park until 1932. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#166074).
