Swamp Creek & Western Model Railroad
The Swamp Creek & Western Model Railroad Association operates the Port Columbia and Eastern, a fictitious bridge route over the Cascade Mountains of Washington State. It is a 30' x 28' HO scale (1/87th) model railroad housed in the old freight room of the Edmonds Amtrak (ex-GN) BNSF station.
Take a virtual tour of the railroad routes on their website or come by the first Saturday in December for their annual open house, or on every third Tuesday evenings (7-8 pm).
Historical Museum Permanent Exhibit
Another great place to see a model railroad is at the Edmonds Historical Museum. Their permanent exhibit is a restored large model train layout constructed by Donald Drew, owner of the Pacific Fast Mail Company.

Looking to spot a full sized locomotive? Full-scale operations of Amtrak, the Sounder and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad travel past the Edmonds waterfront every day. Visit the ferry landing or Meadowdale park for your next train spotting adventure.
Always be safe! Stay off the tracks!
