Ride the Steam Train
Join us for Steam Train special event weekends for a Steam Train ride behind Northern Pacific Locomotive 924! Steam locomotive 924, an 1899 Roger's built 0-6-0 served the Northern Pacific Railway in Washington until 1923, and continued in service for the Inland Empire Paper Company until donated to the Museum in 1969. Today the 924 is a King County Landmark.
2023 Steam Train excursions are planned for Mothers' & Fathers' Day Weekends, and the first weekends in October and November. Tickets will go on sale around a month prior to each event. Visitors ride the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad aboard historic railroad coaches through the Upper Snoqualmie Valley along 5.5 miles of the original 1880s Seattle Lake Shore and Eastern Railway. The scenic train ride between North Bend and Snoqualmie Falls operates on 2-hour schedule with 30 minute stop at the Railway History Campus. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Everyone over the age of 2 needs a ticket.
*Due to Covid-19 pandemic reopening restrictions; train excursions comply with Washington State reopening restrictions.
