The new Great Northern & Cascade Railroad is rolling down the tracks in hopes of making happy memories for families from far and wide.  the 1/8th scale railroad runs on a half-mile long loop around the site of the historic railroad yard in Skykomish.  The free train ride runs each weekend all summer.  While you are in Skykomish, check out the lovely Skykomish Library directly across the street from the railroad park, and the newly rebuilt Whistling Post Tavern.
