If you have Santa Train tickets and are attending Santa Train:

  • Check your tickets:Yuletide Express departs from Snoqualmie Depot and Santa Limited from North Bend Depot.
  • Dress for the weather: Though the Snoqualmie Valley is at under 500 feet we are expecting storms the first two weekends of the event; the trains will still run.

On busy days this may take some time but they are working on getting back to requests as quickly as possible. Because of the multiple site locations at the Railway Museum, other staff extensions are typically unable to assist with visitors services inquiries as they do not have access the ticketing system.
