Train of Logs on Luffenholtz Trestle around 1890

Engine #11 - Oregon & Eureka Rail Road. Luffenholtz Creek is near Trinidad. This trestle, along with the town of Luffenholtz, burned to the ground in 1908 in a major Humboldt County forest fire. Many families lost their houses and all their possessions, barely escaping with their lives. Ericson Photograph Collection, Humboldt State University Library
