The year 1909 marked the beginning of Camp 3 at the Victoria Millsite five miles east of Stanwood. English built another railroad spur from Camp 3 and Florence Logging Co. and Sunday Lake, the area that English was logging. English hauled logs for Florence as well as his own. He bought his first coal-burning locomotive for that spur.

In 1920 English moved his camp south to Bryant to form Camp 6, in the midst of one of finest forests in the state, with some trees more than 200 feet high. They extended the railroad from Camp 3, at Victoria, to the new camp
(Camp 6) where they logged for the next four years.
