Some nice engines visited

Ellen and I just completed a driving trip back to the mid-west, stopping in Montana and Wyoming where I was able to get pictures of some very nicely preserved engines.IMG_20160419_083155_525 IMG_20160419_083405_548
This 4-6-0 Northern Pacific engine in Missoula was a delight to visit. Sadly, this beautiful station building is now being used by a Saturday Marked group. I suppose it is better than it being torn down.

LCMRR Swap Meet

This weekend, I attended the Lewis County Model railroad swap meet at the Lewis Co fair grounds. It was smaller than the Portland swap meets and most of the venders are local residents. However if you are into Northern Pacific or Great Northern, as I am, it was a nice place to visit. The pictures are of the fair grounds hall and the prizes I acquired.
