Northwest Railway Museum
I grew up in a family where it just wasn't a vacation unless a train was involved. My father was a fanatic. He'd talk for hours about the history and engineering. His smile just wasn't as big unless he was on a train. When he passed, trains become even more special. They keep our bond. When I started volunteering at the museum, I met Bob. His patient manner and skilled craftsmanship help to restore these 100-year old gems to their former glory so the tradition of family train ride can continue.
I had the pleasure of meeting Brad, the owner of Truepoint Metalworks while filming a documentary for Sandstone Distillery in Tenino, Washington. He's witty and talented and has a wealth of knowledge having been in the metal business for over 25 years. I'm grateful to him and his team for letting me explore his shop for a day!
