Several parallel railroad tracks going up a mountain. There are cut boards (possibly railroad ties) along the track and a stack of barrels. Uphill from the tracks, a group of men, many holding shovels, stand on flatcars of a train.
A steam engine travels through mountains alongside a body of water in Breathitt County, Kentucky. Several men stand on a flatcar. Stacked railroad ties lie alongside the tracks. The railroad was used by the logging plant.
