The Rhätische Bahn's log transport is Supporting the forestry industry along Railway

The Rhaetian Railway is located in the Swiss canton of Graubünden, which is blessed with the rich natural beauty of the Alps. The railroad is also active in the forestry industry, and the transportation of logs by rail is a symbolic scene along its route. The "R-w" long goods cars used for transportation are freight cars that can transport not only logs, but also containers and heavy machinery. They can also be seen running on surface tracks with logs loaded, or operating in short trains with no cargo loaded.
