Brooks-Scanlon Lumber Company
Log Flats at Collier State Park

Amongst the collection of logging artifacts on display at the Collier State Park Logging Museum near Chiloquin, Oregon, were three Brooks-Scanlong log flats. The cars were displayed with a stiff boom McGiffert loader originally constructed for the McCloud River Railroad. Unfortunately, several decades of exposure to the elements had not been kind to the cars- the one underneath the loader was still relatively intact, but the other two were in bad shape. All wood parts of these cars, along with the McGiffert loader, burned in the Two Four Two fire in September 2020. Oregon State Parks let a contract in the summer of 2022 to fully restore the burned equipment.
