The Northwest Railway Museum invites locals to celebrate their mothers this Mother’s Day with a scenic train excursion through the Cascade foothills.

Local mothers will journey to the top of Snoqualmie Falls and enjoy the view of the valley below. The museum offers all mothers a free ride aboard its antique train, when accompanied by a paying child of any age.

Passengers may board in Snoqualmie or North Bend. Each trip includes a stop at the Train Shed Exhibit Building. Tickets may be purchased at either the Snoqualmie or North Bend Depots. Trains depart beginning at 11 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot at 38625 SE King Street and at 11:30 a.m. from the North Bend Depot at 205 McClellan Street.

Roundtrip fares are $10 for ages 2 through 12, $16 for ages 62 and up, $20 ages 13 to 61 and children under 2 are free. For more information, visit www.TrainMuseum.org or call 425-888-3030.

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.

The Snoqualmie Depot and bookstore are open to the public 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The Train Shed Exhibit Building is open Thursday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for drive up visitors.
