Portland OR Questions..
« on: November 16, 2011, 01:10:14 AM »

I remember discussions that indicated there is a good N scale friendly hobby shop on the East side of the Willamette,  Can anyone refresh my memory with a name, location or suggestions.

Looks like I am going to be freezing my SoCal butt off during T'Day week up North so I may as well have some train fun.

Anyone know a vegetation friendly place that I could take my grandson to for lunch if we go to the Amtrak station in Vancouver to watch trains ? 

Thanks all,

EJA - aka Ed Anderson

The Hobbysmith in the Hollywood District.  I can't help you on the Vegetarian fare.

Ed check with Joe Fugate to see if he's having an op
or work session on his awesome SP layout. His contact
is on his web site and MRH.

Hi Ed,

If you are driving through Talent (southern Oregon), please stop by Micro-Trains for a tour.

Portland has the Hobby Smith, which is really great for N, there's also Tamy's trains in Beaverton and the Whistle Stop just south of the Airport.

Cheers

Ed, My wife says there are several places on Main St and C St ( Main North-South One way Streets)
Also she knows one on 8th just west of the park. I, however, don't know any !
11th is the street that runs directly to the Amtrak Station.
