– About Mt. Rainier Railroad:
“Located in the small town of Elbe in beautiful Washington State is a heritage railroad south of Mount Rainier National Park. Passengers enjoy steam train rides through the forest and across the glacial fed Upper Nisqually River to a museum located in Mineral, Washington. Museum exhibits offer a chance to explore a comprehensive collection of steam logging locomotives and discover the stories behind the pioneers of railroad logging camps in the early to mid 1900’s. Excursions and museum visits are scheduled May through October with a thrilling new holiday event this winter!”

– Another great area option, The Chehalis-Centralia Railroad

“A ride on the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad is a pleasant, scenic, and relaxing journey back in time. Gaze at the scenery as the nine-mile, former Milwaukee Road track winds through the scenic upper Chehalis River valley, crossing over several wooden trestles and passing many historic farms.”

“Pumpkin Train, The Polar Express™, and Santa Steam Train tickets are now on sale. See the Tickets page to buy tickets for any of these Holiday trains.

Pumpkin Train days are on Oct 28 and Oct 29. The Polar Express™ Train will run weekends from Nov 24 through Dec 17, and our Santa Steam Train runs the weekends of Dec 2-3, and Dec 9-10.”
