Meet The Team
Peter's interest in trains began in his youth, while visiting his Grandfather's home outside of England. As a child Peter would always find someone to take him to the railroad tracks on the border of the property to watch the commuter train go racing by. This childhood love for trains reemerged later in life as a vision of creating a museum quality model railroad within his home. Peter collected and read over 400 railroad books, along the way marking with sticky notes his favorite landscapes.
Thus begun the creation of the Northwest Trunk Lines model railroad. The artists went to work to feather these favorite scenes together in a seamless manner, leading smoothly from one environment to another. Today the NWTL is one of the largest O-Scale model railroads in the country. Over the years Peter has recognized that it's not necessarily about trains, it's about watching skilled artists create a unique world of landscapes out of raw materials. It brings him great joy to see these artists creativity and skill.
Rob began his model railroading career on the NWTL layout back in 2010. Before miniature worlds became his career, he worked for an alternative energy company, specifically working in the design and testing phase of hydrogen reactors. His experience in low voltage wiring and diagnostics helped the evolution into working on highly technical model railroads. Rob has transitioned into a project manager role, as the NWTL takes the next step in becoming a world class museum.
Rob is a lifetime Snoqualmie Valley resident, living at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac near the base of Mount Si. When he's not, "playing with trains" he can be found doing something outdoors with his wife, one year old son and 2 crazy pups.
