The Northwest Railway Museum invites children to treat their dads to a special train ride aboard the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad on Father’s Day weekend, June 20 and 21.
Fathers ride free all weekend when accompanied by their paying children of any age.
Last year, over 500 dads enjoyed a free ride with their children during the two‐day event.
Trains depart every 75 minutes beginning at 11:01 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot, 38625 S.E. King Street and at 11:26 a.m. from the North Bend Depot, 205 McClellan Street.
Roundtrip fares are $7 for children ages 2 to 12, $10 for children ages 13 to 61, and $9 for 'children' ages 62 and up.
Founded in 1957, the Northwest Railway Museum operates an interpretive railway program offering antique train excursions through the Upper Snoqualmie Valley. The museum’s collection of railway artifacts and equipment includes over 70 examples of locomotives, passenger and freight cars, and specialized railway equipment.
The Snoqualmie depot, exhibits and Depot Bookstore are open to the public 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.
