The Northwest Railway Museum made a beautiful setting for television's King 5 Evening Magazine. The filming occurred on Monday, June 14 with host Meeghan Black. It featured the Snoqualmie Depot and the Museum's interpretive railway during introductory segments. The program is scheduled to air at 7 PM on Tuesday, June 15, 2010.
Ms. Black has visited the museum prior to today's assignment and took the time to learn about the many improvements made over the last few years. She briefly visited the Conservation and Restoration Center, and had a chance to tour the new Wellington Remembered exhibit. Several clips were filmed from a moving train too.
Special thanks go out to Jason P. and Jon B. for treking up to the Museum to run the train for Meeghan, and to Sue V. and Jessie C. for setting it up! It has become a rare day when the media visits the Museum for coverage not related to a disaster and it was great to be able to accomodate their request.
Evening Magazine in the Seattle market debuted in 1986. It features stories about lifestyle, leisure, current events, and even museums! It remains a popular program after nearly 24 years on the air. Episodes often repeat on Northwest Cable News.
