You Can Get Reasonably Priced Property in Twin Peaks, WA. Sort of.
While Twin Peaks is a real place name in the state of Washington, the crime-drama of the same name was actually based on the area near Snoqualmie Falls, WA. The actual place name refers to two mountain peaks about 37 miles due east of Everett.
But since I've started watching Twin Peaks recently, today we're going to have some damn fine coffee with our cherry pie and discuss the railroad activity near Snoqualmie Falls.

The Northwest Railway Museum continues to run a 5.5 mile heritage line adjacent to the Falls, called the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad, but the rest of the railroads in area have been abandoned.
