Today we attended this open house in Alger, just north of us. It was in this older building.
But inside was so incredible. There were model railroads set up with historic local scenes with incredible intricacy. It was started in 2004, but there have been no visitors during the pandemic until today. Here is a train passing the Alger station.
This is the Cashmire lumber mill.
Here is a town scene.
And the train crossings work with a motorcycle in front of the crossing arm.
Here is an incredible trestle made from actual wood.
Here is a slag burner.
This is another view of the Cashmire mill. Check out the incredible detail!
I love the water features!
Finally I caught a train going over the wooden trestle!
Here is a train roundabout.
Here is a great town scene. In some of the incredible details, there is Waldo and the Beatles.
Here is a closer view of the Beatles.
Tom was loving it too.
This is Union Station.
Here is lovely mountain scene.
Here is Twin City Food in Stanwood.
This is Burlington.
And a closer view.
Another impressive water view.
Here is a street view of Bellingham with incredible detail.
Then we went to the Alger church on the other side of the parking lot and checked out the Monson and Sheepscot River Railroad from Maine. There was another roundabout.
You can see the incredible detail about how he recreated the buildings compared to the historic photos.
This railroad moved slate from a mine to the market. Here is the amazing detail of the slate mine.
I would highly recommend this open house. If you are within striking distance of these open houses, please go. It is truly amazing. The next ones are December 10 and 17, but more are listed after that on their website.
Now we are watching the Apple Cup. Go Dawgs!!!!
