  • Written by Valley View Staff

SNOQUALMIE – The Northwest Railway Museum pays tribute to America’s service men and women and their families this Memorial Day with a special weekday train run on Monday, May 29...

This is in addition to the railroad’s usual weekend train schedule. All trains include a stop at the Train Shed exhibit building, too!
To commemorate the holiday, the museum will offer $5 roundtrip train fare Saturday, May 27, Sunday, May 28 and Monday, May 29, to members of the military:  active duty, guard, reserve, retired and their dependent family members, with current military ID. 

The Museum offers scenic train excursions aboard its antique train, through the Cascade foothills of the Upper Snoqualmie Valley, including a ride to the top of Snoqualmie Falls.

This year, on Sunday May 28, join us to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Northwest Railway Museum and the 50th birthday of the train rides in the Upper Snoqualmie Valley. Enjoy treats at the Railway Education Center as well as special giveaways (while supplies last). The first 50 full fare ticket purchasers receive a special treat, too.

Trains depart every 2 hours beginning at 11:00 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot at 38625 SE King Street and at 11:30 a.m. from the North Bend Depot at 205 McClellan Street. Regular roundtrip fares:  $10 children (ages 2-12), $20 adults (ages 13-61), and $16 (age 62 and up)! For more information, call the Northwest Railway Museum at 425-888-3030 or visit

Visitors to the museum experience the excitement of a working railroad while learning about the important role railroads played in shaping the character of the Pacific Northwest. The Snoqualmie Depot, exhibits and Depot Bookstore are open to the public 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily.
