Accessibility

Northwest Railway Museum coaches are authentic and historically accurate.  They feature limited doorway widths and steep stairwells not fully accessible to persons with disabilities. Our train crews are always prepared to assist you when entraining or detraining. However train crews are not permitted to lift or carry passengers on or off the train, but we do have a hand-crank wheel chair lift for wheelchair bound passengers.  Please advise the train crew about your special needs prior to boarding so they may best meet your requirements.

Helpful Hints

1. Arrive early to enjoy the downtown. This way there is no rush to find parking and get tickets before the train leaves at its departure time.

2. Before boarding the train check out the restroom at the depot.  There are no restrooms on the train.

3. Dress for the weather.  If it is a cool, rainy day, bring jackets.  If it is a warm, sunny day, dress in layers to stay cool if its too warm. Bring an extra bottle of water for the ride.

4. Bring a camera. There are some amazing views and neat artifacts along the way.

5. Turn off the phone and have fun! Take the time to enjoy what it might have been like to ride a train a hundred years ago.

6.  Remember to pack and wear your favorite mask that securely covers both your nose and mouth.
