Red River -  Paul Bunyan's Own Lumber Company and Its Railroads ~ by Robert M. Hanft

There is something here for the narrow gauge enthusiasts, plus a rumor of an 1868 model 4-4-0 that may still exist, ......... Description of lumber fluming, a well-photographed set of highway (traction) locomotives, and vintage fire trucks are included, along with Red River's unique fire train.
