BCF Rosewall Log Sort – Mud Bay

Mud Bay is a shallow water muddy bay on Baynes Sound, between Union Bay and Fanny Bay. It was a flag stop when the E&N passenger service ran and was once serviced to transport loads of cedar shingles and shakes.

The train does not run here anymore, but cedar logs are sorted at the Rosewall Log Sort, and turned into shingles and shakes at the adjacent B.C.F. Shake Mill.

If you’re wondering what the difference between a shingle and a shake, a shingle is sawn on both sides and is thinner at the butt than a shake. A shake is typically split on one or both sides, but there are also taper sawn shakes that are sawn on both sides.
