Season's Greetings

Happy holidays from the Northwest Railway Museum!  

2018 has been another successful year for the Museum.  Thousands of guests were served and several project milestones were met.

Important achievements included acquisition of a Pullman-built parlor car, substantial progress on the steam locomotive 924 rehabilitation, successful nomination of interurban car 523 to the Landmarks Register, and the fabrication and installation of five rows of pews in chapel car 5.  However the really noteworthy achievement was again serving more than 120,000 guests (combined paid & unpaid) with at least one program, including more than 12,000 at the most-attended Santa Train ever. 

All of our regular staff - Elizabeth (volunteer coordinator), Bob (collection assistant), Cristy (registrar), Gary (collection technician), Jessie (deputy director), Traci (bookstore clerk), Lara (visitor services), and Jennifer (bookkeeper) join me in thanking you for your patronage and support, and in wishing you and your families the happiest of holidays and the very best in the New Year.
