Facility:Bellingham Railway Museum
Description:The centerpiece of the Bellingham Railway Museum is the Centennial Exhibit, featuring historic photographs, artifacts, timetables and other items that take the visitor through the history of railroading in Whatcom and Skagit counties. They are also introducing electronic exhibits such as a railroad radio scanner so that visitors can listen in on actual railroad communication as it happens. Another exhibit features many types of railroad lanterns used in the days before radio. Some of the lanterns on display date back to before the turn of the century and illustrate railroading in the dark years. Be sure to try out the Train Simulator featuring state-of-the-art technology. The Museum's Lionel and tinplate exhibit features a collection of pre- and post-war Lionel, Marx and Ives trains and the historic accessories that went with them. They also display a series of hand built one-half inch scale (1/24th) models of antique logging equipment by Bellingham modeler Randy German. These exquisite models allow visitors to see how logging was done in the years before chainsaws and diesel equipment.
