Common carrier railroads that hauled logs would be mostly in the South (Tremont & Gulf) or the West (Oregon, Pacific & Eastern, Oregon, California & Eastern), and were mostly at least partly owned by the lumber companies whose logs they hauled.

I don't know the T&G, but the OP&E hauled very little BESIDES logs. Thus it would hardly meet ANY of John Miller's criteria.
