In Cass, W.Va., visitors can ride working steam trains to a replica of a logging camp. Clanking and whirring, a steam locomotive in Cass, W.Va., noses three wagonloads of tourists past a mammoth leaking water tower. The train disappears up a rail incline into the forest. A whistle fit for a full-throated highball locomotive soon echoes through the ravine of Leather-bark Run. Artie Barkley's baby is taking another trip. Artie is the 54-year-old shop superintendent of the Cass Scenic Railroad, a state park in the Alleghenies about five hours from Baltimore.

Calls to curb logging in Maryland's largest publicly owned forest dominated an open hearing in Catonsville last night, contrasting with the vocal pro-logging crowd that turned out Wednesday in Oakland.Nearly all of the more than 100 people who attended last night's hearing at Catonsville Community College urged the state Department of Natural Resources to ban logging in most, if not all, of the Savage River State Forest in Garrett County.State forestry officials have drafted a 10-year management plan that would leave 55 percent of the 53,000-acre forest open to logging.

Landowners who want to cut trees on their property without creating a disaster area can learn how at a free program at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Carroll County Agricultural Center on Smith Avenue in Westminster.The topic, "Logging Aesthetics," may sound like an oxymoron, but Geoffrey T. Jones, a licensed professional forester and the program's featured speaker, says it's not."Timber harvesting under the best of circumstances is going to create a mess. But there are things people can do to minimize that mess," he says.

The report recommends that logging be phased out over five years, except for diseased or damaged trees that are a threat to safety.

A city task force recommends phasing out almost all logging of the forestland surrounding the city's reservoirs in Baltimore and Carroll counties to protect the region's water supply and to save a little wilderness in rapidly developing suburbia.Weighing in on a feud that has been simmering for nearly three years, the task force says the 17,580 acres of mostly wooded land around Loch Raven, Liberty and Prettyboy reservoirs should be disturbed as little as possible.The task force also wants the city to more closely regulate recreational activities, such as boating and picnicking, which may threaten the water quality of the lakes.

WASHINGTON -- The Forest Service authorized extensive new logging yesterday for the next 10 years in the Tongass National Forest in southeastern Alaska, the nation's last expanse of old-growth temperate rain forests.The plan calls for cutting 220 million to 267 million board feet of timber annually: about enough to load 50,000 logging trucks or build more than 20,000 houses a year.It is less than the region's loggers and Alaska's congressional delegation have sought, but more than leading environmental groups deem acceptable.

RESERVE, N.M. -- Under orders from the White House to try again to put federal timber sales on a sounder economic footing, the U.S. Forest Service has proposed changes that would end logging on more than a third of the national forests by 1998.Environmental groups and other opponents of the timber sales have long argued that the government charges too little and provides too many services to companies that log national forests, at a cost to taxpayers at hundreds of millions of dollars a year.
