Welcome to the Swamp Creek & Western Model Railroad Association
The SC&W, a not for profit organization of approximately fifteen active members, operates the Port Columbia and Eastern, a fictitious bridge route over the Cascade Mountains of Washington state. It is a 30′ x 28′ HO scale (1/87th) model railroad housed in the old freight room of the Edmonds, Washington Amtrak BNSF station.

THE SC&W RR ASSOCIATION
The PC&E’s parent organization, Swamp Creek and Western Railroad Association (SC&W) is incorporated as a non-profit in the State of Washington. The SC&W began in 1974 at Chi-Bar Hobbies (ex-Hobbyland) just up the road from its current location in Lynnwood. Shop and railroad expansion led to the search for new quarters. In April of 1977, a lease was negotiated with the Burlington Northern
Railroad (now BNSF) for the Edmonds depot (ex-Great Northern) 28′ x 30′ freight room. The building is shared with Amtrak.
Brief drop-in visits are welcome the third Tuesday of the month, from 7 to 9 p.m., during our regular operating sessions. Open house operating sessions are conducted in conjunction with many local events. The next date will be posted below.
Our Grand Holiday Open House is held each year in early December in conjunction with Amtrak.
