Train stores on Portland?

I'll be traveling to Portland, OR next week and want to visit a model railroad store or two. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Also, what other railroad related places, model or prototype, might be of interest.

Is the old SP Daylight still in Portland and is it viewable?

Thanks/ Carter

Whistle Stop Trains is probably the best model railway shop in Portland. I think that it's on SE Division Street, but you should find the address in the clasified ads in Model Railroader.

She will be under steam July 5 - 9 but you just missed that.

Also down south about 70 miles on I5 in Albany there are 3 Daylight cars. If you go there I can give you directions. I lived in Albany for 14 years

If you get to see 4449 PLEASE send me some pictures.
