I originally posted these pictures on my old website on February 9, 2008.
The Longview, Kelso & Rainier Model Railroad Club's first-ever Model Train Show & Swap Meet in Rainier, Oregon was held December 8-9, 2007 in the gym of the Riverside Community Church, the former Rainier Elementary School. This year, the show was affected by weather: major flooding had occurred the week before, preventing the Peninsula Model Railroad Club of Ilwaco, Washington from attending as they had planned, and the threat of snow, which appeared on Sunday, may have kept the public away.
This group of pictures shows a train descending the branch line to the yard on the Longview, Kelso & Rainier Model Railroad Club’s HO-scale layout on Saturday, December 8. The train is pulled by LK&R SW1000 #100 with LK&R Caboose #49 on the end. The train includes some Christmas rolling stock, and eventually arrives in the yard alongside another train pulled by LK&R GP50 #350 with LK&R Caboose #60 on the end.
I am presenting these pictures without captions.
