For over forty years, Northwest families have made Santa Train, at the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie, a highlight of their holiday season celebration. Visitors take a holiday excursion aboard the museum’s vintage train to visit Santa Claus at the historic Snoqualmie Depot. Children and their families will enjoy music, fresh-baked cookies from coal-fired ovens, hot cocoa and fresh coffee, and a small gift for each child.

The two-hour holiday celebration takes place November 30 - December 1, December 7-8, December 14-15 and December 20-21. Tickets are $20. Visit
