Have just seen this.

Are we really talking about logs being transferred FROM a train TO log trucks. I don't think I am aware of this at all. It was trucks TO train at transfers. Most started in the 1940's so maybe beyond the time frame and were standard gauge. Narrow gauge is pretty rare in the Pacific Northwest. If you don't want a spar tree or A frame ( as at Engelwood ) then Rayonier, Schafer and I think Weyerhaeuser used overhead cranes at a transfer.

Best wishes from the UK
