Description: 

Quentin calls the tracks on which the "log train" travels through the woods "the dummy line" (187), by which he presumably distinguishes it from the kind of permanent main railroad line that connects cities and towns. Log trains travel back and forth along short spur lines, carrying harvested trees to the sawmill. Quentin and Boon have to "flag" the train down to get it to stop for them, and they ride with the conductor and brakeman in the caboose (187).
