A great way to see the country side! Fun for the kids and adults. Very relaxing. They have candy/snacks on sale. You can bring your own snacks and water too. They give complimentary cider on the way back, nice little treat. There are restrooms on the train. Suggest sitting on one side up and the other side on the return to see more. Must do at least once!

We traveled from the Portland area. Give yourself plenty of time to drive up. The drive was easy though! We would highly recommend this activity to everyone. The staff was so kind!

It's a bit of a drive from Portland so I would recommend making it an overnight trip and seeing the rest of the town before driving back! :)

It was so much fun that I was disappointed when we stopped and they started taking us back the way we came. It was still a great time. Even with all the people, it was peaceful and perfect for part of our 16th anniversary date. Next time we'll go on a longer ride!

Great staff, get to see the train and hear the whistle blow from any seat and includes both inside and outside seating. Great for all ages.

This was a great trip! We will definitely make the trip again, probably the longer ride and we are considering the murder mystery dinner ride as well. Be sure to allow extra time to get there as I-5 backs up heavily in that area on weekends.

Very nicely done, and only 5 minutes off I-5.

From Our Editors

Along routes covering up to 12 miles, the modern world disappears into a plume of steam, and the sound of a locomotive's whistle rings through the air. The main attraction at the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad & Museum doesn't sit behind glass. It travels up and down the old Milwaukee Road track, passing by historic farmlands and over wooden trestles.

Restored to its former glory, the museum's 1916 vintage steam locomotive pulls an open passenger coach and a dining coach on trips back into time. Along the way, eyes feast on the greenery of the upper Chehalis Valley, which forms the backdrop for all of these excursions. Depending on the trip, the train may set the stage for a murder mystery dinner or transform into the Polar Express, just when Santa thought he was about to get time off for the holidays.
