RailCamp Northwest in July/August 2014 will headquarter at the University of Puget Sound and can accept 18 campers. Activities will be spread across the area, including a day with Amtrak at the newly renovated and restored King Street Station in Seattle and the large maintenance facility located adjacent to it. Campers will be involved in everything from Station Operations to maintenance of long-haul passenger equipment.
Another day will be spent at the Operations Center of Tacoma Municipal Belt Line, a division of Tacoma Public Utilities and a major player in west coast intermodal operations. This will be a day of working on a real working railroad doing whatever is being done that day including building intermodal trains for the trip east and servicing the power that pulls them.
