Washington Iron Works yarder on a flatcar
A Great Northern flatcar provides an appropriate platform to exhibit a Washington Iron Works compound yarder.
A yarder was a crucial tool in mountain logging. It was used to winch the logs to a central point where they could be loaded onto railcars, or trucks when they replaced the log train.
