An anxious mail order bride arrives by rail in the 19th century to embark on a new life with a husband she has never met, in a scene enacted by Camille Hildebrandt at Issaquah’s Train Depot, as Emma Wolff, 5, of Bellevue, and her grandfather Ron Wolff, visiting from the Skagit Valley, look on. The Suitcases Project performance art, including an orphan train, hobos, a chapel car sermon and penny rag newspaper urchins, was a 4Culture 2014 Historic Site Specific Project that turned the Train Depot Museum into a living, breathing exhibit of railroad history.
