The steam donkey was invented by Eureka businessman and mill owner John Dolbeer. It was used to move logs from the woods to the mill site. Members of the Timber Heritage Association will be on hand to steam up the historic Falk shay locomotive and provide free train rides. The Falk was used in logging operations near the long-gone town of Falk at the headwaters of the Elk River.
