Washington - Inland Northwest Rail Museum

Reardan, WA - In 1967, a group of railroad enthusiasts formed a local chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and named it the Inland Empire Railway Historical Society. The aim of the organization was to preserve the history of railroading in the Inland Northwest for future generations. The Societyís first major project began in 1970 with the cleaning and painting of retired Union Pacific locomotive 3206 in Spokaneís Highbridge Park. That same locomotive was the first piece of equipment that was moved to the Spokane Interstate Fairgrounds in 1978.

Since that time the groupís train display and museum has grown to include almost 30 different rail cars and engines plus an outstanding selection of railroad memorabilia and an extensive library.

The organization now operates the Inland Northwest Rail Museum on 30 acres near Reardan, Wash., adjacent to the Eastern Washington Gateway Railroad short line, at 27300 Sprinkle Rd. N.
