"Werkslok" müsste schon passen, denn:
Man findet über den Textauszug in #0 heraus, dass es um eine "mill" in Portland, Oregon geht, genauer gesagt in den Städtchen "Palmer" und "Bridal Veil". Und dazu findet man das hier:
"Trees, many of them of tremendous diameter and height, thickly stud the mountain side. These trees are felled and cut into logs in the ordinary manner of these Wewstern lumbering forests, after which donkey engines, mounted upon heavy sleighs made purposely for them, gather the product in from all directions. Long cables are employed for this purpose, and they can strip an acre or two of saw logs at a single setting. This process is called "yarding", and when a section has been cleared the donkey and sleigh are moved, by using the cables, to another place. "Bull" donkeys of greater strength than "yarding" donkeys, with their endless cables, haul the logs from the "yard" to a logging railroad, and this latter delivers them at the mill. The "bull" donkeys use a skid road, but the railroad, upon which is run a powerful Baldwin locomotive, is constructed much the same as any other railroad, only it has no cars in its equipment. The logs, rounded (or "sniped") at one end, are drawn over the ties, one trailing after the other -- a string of them half a mile long, sometimes -- and their passing over them does not seem to injure the ties in the least degree."
