Special Update


Why do we still require masks? Transportation Safety Adminsitration regulations currently require all railways, airlines and buses to have persons masked through September 2021. Though social distancing regulations are loosening in much of the region, the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad’s falls under the jurisdiction of the FRA and TSA regulations. We ask that all visitors over the age of 2 and require for those over the age of 5 to wear a mask that covers both nose and mouth while visiting.
