Snoqualmie train rides return on Oct. 3

Train excursions at the Northwest Railway Museum will resume on Oct. 3 in the upper Snoqualmie Valley.

The popular train rides are scheduled to continue on weekends through the Christmas holiday season. Train capacity will be reduced to allow visitors to socially distance on the 100 year old railway coaches during the scenic train excursions.

The excursions are round trip, with a stop at the top of Snoqualmie Falls, featuring views of the river valley more than 300 feet below, a press release from the Northwest Railway Museum said. But until coronavirus restrictions are relaxed, trains will not stop at the Tran Shed Exhibit. However, ticket holders can enter the Train Shed during regular hours from Wednesday through Sunday.

Train rides are 90 minutes long and cost $20 for an adult ticket, $10 for a children’s ticket and $15 for a senior ticket. They will depart on Saturdays and Sundays from Snoqualmie at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. North Bend departures are scheduled 25 minutes after each of the Snoqualmie departures.

Face masks will be required on the train for everyone over the age of 5, and children between 2 and 5 are asked to wear masks.
