Stumptown Express a Great Success!

The four members of Division 5 that attended the PNR Convention in Portland earlier this month had a great time. We’re sorry more of you weren’t there, but we enjoyed seeing friends from throughout the region.

I won’t detail all the clinics, tours, and competitions, which were great. But this year’s  banquet featured a presentation on “Kitbashing in 1:1 Scale,” in which Oregon Center for Railroad History Doyle McCormack described his several year effort to rebuild an Alco PA, which is now almost ready to run. Here’s a picture of “Doyle’s Sports Car” as the museum guides called it:

YOU should start planning now for next year’s PNR Convention in Cranbook, just 3 hours from Spokane.

We’ve added a new hobby shop to our listing for Spokane: Valley Trains & Hobbies, LLC, in Spokane Valley opened the first week in June.

Happy railroading!
