    Just sent my second donation of $50.75 (PayPal) to get it in to take advantage of the matching offer.
    Thank you to the very special person. What a great idea to raise funds.

    Thanks for all your hard work! I think it is great to preserve the “other” railroad history in Washington, so that people don’t forget the huge effort the Milwaukee Road made in the PNW and unfortunately lost in 1980. Too bad they couldn’t have made it 5 more years, but thanks for the memories of a truly unusual railroad. Tom
