Northwest Railway Museum reviews
Nice historical location. There are quite a few unique old railway trains out here which you can see. Some of the cool ones are behind a fence though, where others you can get closer to. The original station and lumber history is in great shape, and this is a place that any train enthusiast should see. Depending on when you come, it kind of has that "Twin Peaks" vibe to the place.
We paid extra for the "Grand Tour". The docent led experience was great. Our docent was very knowledgeable. It's however, a VERY short train ride, and the trip to the falls was disappointing. You don't actually see much at all. The plateau at the top of the falls and then the valley below. No actual sight of the falls themselves.
