Fun with kids in PDX

If you have some kids or are entertaining them over a Nov. weekend, consider the Columbia Gorge Model Railroad Club. It's a large room filled with a giant train set that models 1950s Portland, the Gorge, a logging camp somewhere near Mt. Hood and the Bend area. There are about a dozen trains flying around the tracks and a wealth of detail. The lights periodically dim and tiny lights come on across the diorama. The amount of work the club members put in is incredible, they are artists of the train world. Take a kid and you will be very popular.
