1999 Logging Convention
5th Annual NW Logging Modelers’ Convention
at Camp Elkanah ~ June 18 - 20, 1999

Camp Elkanah, Oregon ~ a former logging railroad camp

We lived in these skid shacks (left) and camp cars (right)

The camp cars were built in the 30’s on 1899 (this one) flatcars

The “Bethlehem 4” ~ “Engineer Jeff,” Hiromi, “Bindle Jim,” and me,
“Jersey George.” Guess which one of us forgot to pack his bindle...

The food was great (thanks Sonia) and bull sessions abounded in the dining car

Merv working his 1/8th scale donkey ~ what a treat to watch

Merv made sure all willing volunteers were assigned a job

We had wonderful weather for Sunday’s railfan trip

That’s all until next year . . . see you in Kelso, Washington
