Washington Northern

HO scale model railroad

my former layout- the wn coast subdivision

My pervious version of the Washington Northern was a large double-decked version representing the Coast Subdivision. Here are a few select photos of that layout. Started in 1995, it was dismantled in 2004.

An eastbound loaded grain train holds the main while the Deep Creek Mine Run takes the siding preparing to switch the Deep Creek Mine at Recharge.

A caboose glides past still active Waterline Tower in Port Andrews.
The local freight is returning to Discovery Yard after switching industries
in the Diamond Point industrial area.

A westbound with a SD40T-2 in charge rumbles past the depot in the remote Olympics at Glacier, Washington.

Trains pass on the double track mainline running through the heart of the Port Andrews.

EMD F-units were assigned to helper service before their retirement in the early 1980s. Here F7 #12 shoves hard on a westbound freight heading for Olympia in May 1974.

A leased LMX unit leads a eastbound frieght near the Hoh River toward Port Andrews.

GP9 No. 223 switches the Deep Creek Mine on the Washington Northern Coast Subdivision.
