The Northwest Railway Museum pays tribute to America’s workers this Labor Day with a special weekday train run of the Museum’s antique train on Monday, September 2.

This is in addition to the railroad’s usual weekend train schedule.

The Northwest Railway Museum offers scenic train excursions through the Cascade foothills of the Upper Snoqualmie Valley, including a ride past the top of Snoqualmie Falls and a splendid view of the valley below.

Trains depart every 90 minutes beginning at 11:01 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot at 38625 S.E. King Street and at 11:31 a.m. from the North Bend Depot at 205 McClellan Street. Roundtrip fares: $10 children ages 2-12, $15 adult ages 13-61, and $12 senior ages 62 and up! This is the final day on the summer schedule.

The fall schedule begins on September 7 at 12:01 p.m.

Visitors to the museum experience the excitement of a working railroad while learning about the important role railroads played in shaping the character of the Pacific Northwest.

Exhibits and interpretive signage are visible around the Snoqualmie Depot. Train Shed Tour Packages are also available with advanced reservation; contact jessie@trainmuseum.org for Train Shed Tour Package reservations. The depot and bookstore are open to the public 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
