Railroad Days: Equipment demonstrations show history of local rails
August 17, 2012 · 2:32 PM
The history of railroad construction and maintenance is filled with fascinating machines. The Northwest Railway Museum has a number of examples in its collection and Railroad Days is an opportunity to see some of them demonstrated.
You’ll see motor cars, a tie spacer, an automatic spiker, a ballast regulator, and even special cranes that travel on both the railroad and the road. This year there will be demos at 12:15, 1:15, 2:15 and 3:15 p.m at the Snoqualmie Depot.
