This is the front of an old train in the Maxwell Siding Railroad Museum in Hermiston. Santa came for a visit Saturday, which brought me there as a reporter. Apparently the museum is open nearly every Saturday, run by two volunteers. The train cars and engines were filled with old machinery and train paraphernalia, a little more reminiscent of a ghost town than a straight-up museum. Interesting place, and great for kids who are into trains.
