The Northwest Railway Museum last week announced the appointment of Elizabeth Rudrud as the new Snoqualmie Railroad Days coordinator.

Rudrud will complete the transition into the role in time for this year’s 80th anniversary of Railroad Days. She takes over from the past coordinator, Peggy Barchi, museum marketing and event manager.

The museum continues in its role as the host organization in charge of the overall festival which includes coordinating volunteers, activities, vendors and maintaining the festival budget.

Rudrud is a graduate of the Museum Studies program at the University of Washington and brings event management experience to the museum. She is looking forward to working with Railroad Days committee members and community groups to host this year’s event.
