I drove by there taking my Godson to the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in September of this year, (about 70 miles from Montesano where I was staying). It did say that it is a permanent layout, oh well next time.

Well next time finally arrived yesterday as I visited the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma with its permanent 1700 sq ft HO display of the vicinity railroad from the Cascades to the Puget Sound in the 1950's.

Also it's located on the same grounds as the historic Union Station with matching brickwork.

And to top it off a trolley streetcar type ride that is for free.
