Cougar Ridge Lumber Company


 Track, Rolling Stock, Logs & Other Scenery Items Not Included


Many things both good and bad have been said about the Lumber Barons of yesteryear. But no matter how you feel; the Timber Industry was one of the major industries that built this country. Cougar Ridge has it's roots in the Saw Mills of the Pine Country of Southern Oregon and  Northern California. These mills were used as a basis for our design. No matter.....Cougar Ridge Lumber Company may have been found anywhere they were logging from Alaska to Florida.
