Railroads, Art and American Life Presentation
You’re invited to explore the unique relationship between Railroads, Art and American Life on Sept. 17 at 3 p.m..
Presented in partnership with the Pacific Northwest Railway Archives and the NRM, passengers will begin the round trip experience at the Snoqualmie Depot by climbing aboard historic passenger cars to journey west to the top of Snoqualmie Falls, pausing at the crest for a view of the lower river valley.
Returning east to the Railway History Center for a visit to the Train Shed Exhibit Hall, J. Craig Thorpe, a Seattle-area artist, will present a fascinating look at how railroads, art and American life impact each other. After the program passengers will hop back aboard to return to the Snoqualmie Depot.
Tickets for all three events are available at TrainMuseum.org.
