The Northwest Railway Museum invites children to treat their dads to a special train excursion aboard the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad this Father’s Day weekend, June 16 to 17.

Dad rides free when accompanied by a paying child of any age. Attendees can enjoy a stop at the Train Shed Exhibit Building, views of the Cascade foothills, Snoqualmie Falls, and the Snoqualmie Valley as you relax aboard the Northwest Railway Museum’s historic coaches. NRM encourages locals to bring their whole family.

Trains depart beginning at 11 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot at 38625 SE King St. and at 11:30 a.m. from the North Bend Depot at 205 McClellan St. Roundtrip fares are $10 for ages 2 through 12, $20 for ages 13 through 61, and $16 for ages 62 and up.

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, exhibits and Depot Bookstore are open to the public 10 a.m. through 5 p.m. daily.

For more information on train schedules, the Train Shed Tour packages, Day Out With Thomas tickets and operating hours visit the museum on the web at www.TrainMuseum.org or call (425) 888-3030.
