Fastrill: A Texas Logging Camp
Most children who grew up at logging camps held a real fascination with trains. Here, Shirley Evans and Carl Burchfield pose on the steps of a Southern Pine Lumber Company passenger coach at Fastrill in 1940. Occasionally the wooden coach was used to transport workers between the woods and camp or carry workers and their families between Fastrill and Diboll.
