Memorial Day weekend trains salute America’s military veterans
May 23, 2012
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 May 28.
This is in addition to the railroad’s usual weekend train schedule. To commemorate the holiday, the museum will offer $5 round-trip train fare May 26-28 to anyone with a valid current military ID card. 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.
Trains depart every 90 minutes beginning at 11:01 a.m. from the Snoqualmie Depot at 38625 S.E. King St. and at 11:31 a.m. from the North Bend Depot at 205 McClellan St. Regular round-trip fares are $10 for children ages 2-12, $15 for adults, and $12 for those 62 and older. Call the Northwest Railway Museum at 888-3030 or go to www.trainmuseum.org.
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 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
