Transportation Company - Weyerhaeuser Woods - Railroad

Company History: The Weyerhaeuser Woods Railroad was a logging line operating on behalf of their parent company Weyerhaeuser Timber. The line consisted of a 23 mile route from the Kelso, Washington area northwest to a large lumber mill at Toutle. Weyerhaeuser sold this line along with five other shortlines they owned to Patriot Rail at the end of 2010. The name was changed to Patriot Woods Railroad at that time. There is some evidence that there were other Weyerhaeuser rail operations going under the “Weyerhaeuser Woods Railroad” name including one branching off the Oregon California & Eastern between Klamath Falls and Bly, Oregon but it appears only the Kelso to Toutle line lasted long enough to be sold in the Patriot Rail deal.
Successor/Parent History:
