Accessibility

Northwest Railway Museum coaches are authentic and historically accurate.  They feature limited doorway widths and steep stairwells not fully accessible to persons with disabilities. Our train crews are always prepared to assist you when entraining or detraining. However train crews are not permitted to lift or carry passengers on or off the train, but we do have a hand-crank wheel chair lift for wheelchair bound passengers.  Please advise the train crew about your special needs prior to boarding so they may best meet your requirements.

Helpful Hints

1. Arrive early to enjoy the downtown. This way there is no rush to find parking and get tickets before the train leaves at its departure time.

2. Before boarding the train check out the restroom at the depot.  There are no restrooms on the train.

3. Dress for the weather.  If it is a cool, rainy day, bring jackets.  If it is a warm, sunny day, dress in layers to stay cool if its too warm. Bring an extra bottle of water for the ride.

4. Bring a camera. There are some amazing views and neat artifacts along the way.

5. Turn off the phone and have fun! Take the time to enjoy what it might have been like to ride a train a hundred years ago.

6.  Remember to pack and wear your favorite mask that securely covers both your nose and mouth.

Special Update

ALL TRAIN PASSENGERS AND CREW MUST WEAR MASKS

Why do we still require masks? Transportation Security Adminsitration ("TSA") regulations currently require all railways, airlines and buses to have persons masked through January 2022. Though social distancing regulations are loosening in much of the region, the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad falls under the jurisdiction of the Federal Railway Administration and TSA. 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. By order of King County, proof of vaccination will be required beginning October 25 for all visitors aged 12 and older. The vaccine requirement is a legal mandate imposed by King County. The Museum is required to enforce the law as a condition of remaining open to the public. The Museum has already lost $1.4 million from closures and capacity reductions, further closures would be absolutely disasterous to the Museum. For more information about our social distancing restrictions please visit our Social Distancing Updates page.
