The Michigan-California Lumber gained access too the rich stand of Pine timber between the North and South Forks of the American River by using a unique 2600 foot overhead cable-way system which spanned the 1600 foot deep American River Gorge. The car, suspended from cables, was capable of, and routinely carried fully-loaded log and lumber cars, and even complete steam locomotives. In its two decades of life before being lost to a fire, it carried millions of board feet of pine and fir for decades.
