Our next meeting is July 6th at the PNR Archives and Ken Iverson will be giving a talk on Reservation Tower in Tacoma. This is a second try on the subject as we had technical issues.

RailCamp is full for this year. But consider having your teenager apply next year.

The Chapter will be holding a joint outing with the Pennsylvania group that meets at Burien to travel to and ride the Mount Rainier Railroad on July 20th. We are hoping to have a reserved car if we get enough people interested.

The Chapter is also working on a trip to Bellingham by train with a visit to the Bellingham Railroad Museum and a visit to the Lake Whatcom Railroad. We will keep you posted on the details. Members will get first choice to go, but if room remains we will take others.






Our meetings are held the first Saturday of each month at 11:00 AM at the Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive located at 425 SW 153rd Avenue in Burien, WA. You can call 503-710-4467 if you need details
