Hi All,

Another member of the WW&F, Ted Miles, just posted on RYPN about the progress of the Northwest Railway Museum in Washington. I, it led me to take a second look. When I visited last year, their Railway Education Center (an archival, library, teaching, and visitor service building) was just under construction. The building is now complete and has an archive with some really nice features like rolling shelving and water-free fire suppression systems. It seems, by all accounts, to be a great building, and very well done. Maybe, when the WW&F gets to create a new space for museum and archival purposes we could incorporate some of these features. Their work was funded by the NEH. Take a look on the NWRYM's blog here:

Further information, with building and funding specifics can be found here:

Take care,
Steve
