    On the way back I stopped by the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie and went to their historical center. They will be celebrating Snoqualmie Railroad Days August 17-19 2018, the cashier told me it will include several model railroads.

    Thanks! Love the pics. Wow probably the only little GE 44 tonner owned by the NP? That was neat. The only sad pic is the 4-6-2, a buddy here donated some airbrake parts for her and is still waiting for his cab ride.....
    Northern Pacific and Black Hills RR in N, of course!!

    yeah it is sad, would take an awful lot of work to fully restore and funding. That is the main issue for non-profits like these places is getting the funding to reach their goals.
