'This museum was very fun. A very nice surprise. Lovely docents were very knowledgeable and had their dog ride the train. Wonderful bathroom break on the way over the Cascades, with a good dose of history."

"Set right near the BNSF mainline, is a marvelous miniature railroad powered by steam & diesel model locomotives. The landscaping is beautiful & the area is clean with shelter & picnic tables. Parking is right at the historic Great Northern depot which serves as a museum & gift shop."
