  • Written by Valley View Staff

What’s Special About This Year? 

The Steam Era returns to Snoqualmie! This summer is the 125th anniversary of passenger train service to the Valley. On July 4, 1889 the inaugural run was a day trip from Seattle to Snoqualmie Falls. The excursion was operated by the M.E. Church Society over the lines of the Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railway Company.

Now, 125 years later during Railroad Days, the Northwest Railway Museum brings steam train excursions  back to Snoqualmie.

During Railroad Days, the Santa Cruz and Portland Cement locomotive 2, a 1909-built Porter locomotive, will let you step back in time to the early days of Snoqualmie.

Online ticket sales begin in August for the Steam Train excursions.
