Great Northern &  Cascade Railway
My son and I have been volunteering every other weekend at the
"Great Northern and Cascade Railway"
 a model railroad in Skykomish, WA.
This weekend is the next to the last in the season.
The GN&CR is an 1/8 scale model railway (1 foot = 1 1/2 inches).
It features close to one mile of 7 1/2 wide track,
a battery-electric powered steam locomotive and 10 passenger cars.

This Saturday (10-18-2014),
GN&CR expects to have three guest steam locomotives:
+ Bob Chapman with his 2-4-0
+Conrad Watne with his Welsh Hunslet 2-4-0 
+ Keith with his ten wheeler
- plus -
+ Mike's Dash 8 -- a model diesel engine
 (powered by a gasoline-hydrolic engine)
will also be on hand for passenger duties.

GN&CR is open 10 A.M. to 4 P.M. weekends and holidays
 May through October
The model railroad is operated on a 100% volunteer and donation basis. 
Also, the rides are free but contributions are gladly accepted.

Come join us in Skykomish for a fun time.
