Logging Sleigh Train at the Rhinelander Museum At first glance a steam powered logging sleigh looks like a train going through the woods, until you notice that there are no wheels involved, and no tracks, just grooves in the ice. Preparing for these large log haulers did involve more than a simple logging trail, it had to be rather straight and level, and in our travels at Woodland Management Service we often come across these old trails hidden in the forest, still in good shape except where they cross rivers, or where the trees have grown over the former well packed grades.
