Snoqualmie's Northwest Railway Museum wants new tour hosts

The Northwest Railway Museum will soon hold its third annual docent training program, and is now seeking volunteers interested in becoming docents.

Museum docents are trained volunteers who give tours to visitors and educate them on how “the Railroad Changed Everything.”

Starting March 29, new recruits will be given special training to serve as docents for the Northwest Railway Museum.

When on duty, docents will give a tour of the Snoqualmie Depot, then board the train with tour groups and give them a tour of the museum’s new Train Shed Exhibition Building, where visitors can see various train cars and special exhibits.

Tours are offered on Saturdays and docents can expect to be on duty once or twice a month.

Knowledge of railroads is not necessary, but applicants should have an interest in history.

To learn more or volunteer for the program, contact the museum at
