The annual March Milwaukee Road Meet is a gathering for slides, movies and discussion and socializing. All are welcome! As in the past, this is a free event. Bring your photos, artifacts, models, memorabilia and other items for display.
The event is sponsored by Cascade Rail Foundation and the Coast Division of the Milwaukee Road Historical Association. We will be meeting at Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive (PNRA), where Cascade Rail Foundation is a member organization. It is also the home of the Boeing Employees Model Railroad Club.
This is your chance to get together and see some photos and presentations by some of the renowned Milwaukee Road photographers and historians in the Pacific Northwest.
Author Kurt Armbruster will be giving a presentation about the history of the Pacific Coast Railroad, which the Milwaukee Road used as part of its mainline between Maple Valley and Black River and also used it to access Seattle from Black River. Kurt’s book about the railroad was recently published by Pacific Northwest Railroad Archive and copies will be available to purchase.
