Thanks for the link, that’s quite a mill.
Antique Power Land out of Brooks OR has a working steam-powered sawmill they run for a couple of weekends every summer. There’s a truck museum too.
That video brings back some memories - I pulled green chain for a summer at the last operating flume mill in WA. It shut down in ‘85. Tour busses had a regular stop so people could watch us work. Somewhere there’s some 8mm film of me starting to wear out my back. I had 4’ racks on my flatbed WC and hauled many loads of mill ends and discarded flume boards home. I remember some mornings wanting real bad to just keep the pedal down and drive on past that mill.
