The United Northwest Model Railroad Club will have displays in the American Legion Hall, Saturday and Sunday as part of the Snoqualmie Railroad Days.

Two layouts are planned, running trains at 1/160th the size of real-life locomotives.

The N-Trak layout, a club favorite since 2008, is built to N-Trak standards with three main tracks and an upper “mountain division” rail.  It can be configured to numerous shapes and sizes.  The layout runs with DC power and with Digitrax digital command control.

The other layout is T-Trak which are 12-foot-square tabletop modules. It was created in partnership with Snohomish County 4-H Foundation Railroad Group (which has both N-scale and HO-scale layouts).  The 4-H Railroad Group railroad has been a part of United NorthWest since 2010.
