The Northwest Railway Museum has a variety of online exhibits on railroad history. Most are companion webpages to exhibits you can see in person at the Northwest Railway Museum's Train Shed Exhibit Hall.

Special Update


Why do we still require masks? Transportation Security Adminsitration ("TSA") regulations currently require all railways, airlines and buses to have persons masked through January 2022. Though social distancing regulations are loosening in much of the region, the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Railway Administration and TSA. We ask that all visitors over the age of 2 and require for those over the age of 5 to wear a mask that covers both nose and mouth while visiting. Proof of vaccination will be required if and when additional governmental mandates are introduced. For more information about our social distancing restrictions please visit our Social Distancing Updates page.
