Valley Special

Volunteer on board the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad

   Do you enjoy people, trains, and history? That's the combination for being a docent on board the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad or at the 1890 Snoqualmie Depot, the oldest operating railway station in Washington.

   Training is required, so a commitment of at least half a year is desired. Docents are welcome weekends or weekdays, any number of hours. Call Jennifer at 425-888-3030 or send e-mail to

   Last year, 60,000 visitors from Washington and around the world visited the Snoqualmie Depot or rode the train. The Northwest Railway Museum is a non-profit corporation dedicated to capturing the excitement of a working railroad and presenting the significance of railroads in the Pacific Northwest's development.

   Programs include train excursions, the Santa Train, educational school programs, and Cecil the Diesel Club with a monthly newsletter for children.
