  • A wonderful model railroad display is the centerpiece of the museum, and it has a lot of information regarding old rail lines and the former trolley system in the Bellingham area. The displays were very informative with several smaller display items to examine.
  • Very cool! My young son is a train enthusiast so this place was amazing for him.
