Great Northern & Cascade Railway
After 5 years of removing contaminated soil, including where the old engine house and power station once stood, the town of Skykomish was ready to move on. In 2011, the GN&C Rwy had started to take shape, and in May 2013, the GN&C Rwy held its opening day. Since then the 1/8-scale railroad has continued to grow and make improvements every year to the railroad, and the park it sits on.
The railroad is open from the first weekend in May until the last weekend in October. Trains run from 10am to 4pm Saturday, Sunday and holidays. During the year people will bring up their own locomotives to run for the day, or entire weekend. It’s a great place to bring the family and take a ride behind a steam engine. Rides are always free, but it is the donations that keep the railroad going.
These are some of the photos I’ve taken since 2013, here is a link to my YouTube channel with videos from Skykomish
