The West Side Flume & Lumber Co. was founded in 1898 to log 55,000 acres of land outside of Tuolumne, California. A 10-mile narrow gauge railroad was laid into the woods east of the town to haul timber down the mountain to the newly constructed lumber mill, as well as to carry loggers to the work sites. In 1900, the lumber company incorporated their railroad as a common carrier called the Hetch Hetchy & Yosemite Valley Railroad, hoping to offer passenger service to the Hetch Hetchy Valley, and on to Yosemite National Park. The passenger trains were operated twice-weekly, and later three times a week, but ridership remained low. In 1903, West Side was sold, and the name was shortened to West Side Lumber Co. In 1904, passenger service was ended in favor of just moving logs and loggers. By the late ’40s, the mainline stretched over 70-miles with nearly 250-miles of spurs, four major trestles, and moved over 40-million board feet a year. The railroad ran until 1960, making it the longest running narrow gauge railroad in America, but the company decided it was more cost-effective to use contract log trucks to move their timber, and the Hetch Hetchy & Yosemite Valley Railroad never ran again.


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, these shirts are everything you’ve dreamed of and more – it feels soft and lightweight with just the right amount of stretch making it comfortable and flattering for both men and women.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
