Tenino Western

The Tenino Western RR traverses typical Pacific Northwest scenery spanning between Olympia and Westport Wa. The class 3 railroad passes along luscious green forest, rolling hills, and meandering little streams as it services a variety of small customers. Customers include a brewery, barge operations, and a handful of logging related industries.The layout is set in the spring of the late 1980's.
