Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club

Posted by West Columbia Gorge Chamber on Monday, November 24, 2014
The Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club is providing public shows of the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad on November 29th and November 30th, 2014. With a 5,000 foot route from one end to the other it takes a model train more than 25 minutes to travel along the Columbia River Gorge. Don’t worry you won’t have to wait half an hour to see a train go by, they typically have 8 trains running at the same time. It is only $6 for adults and $2 for kids from ages 3 to 11, and will provide hours of entertainment. Read more about the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad below.

It’s a breathtaking sight to walk into the building on N. Vancouver Avenue and immediately become immersed in the beauty of the Columbia River Gorge. The layout, which has been built upon since the building’s construction in 1982, depicts scenes from a 1950s Portland and beyond, complete with a miniature Union Station built off of the 1893 building’s actual blueprints.
