Get there early to check in, pay, etc & for better choice of seating. They were very gracious. We were there for the Santa Claus express. the Santa Claus even saw us on his break & took time to talk with our gals.

Arrive a little early, take snacks & water, sit on left side if glimpses of mountain are important. Spectacular time for 3, 5, 8 year olds & 2 grandparents. Will do it again in a heartbeat. Train personnel are top notch!

At the time of year that the Santa train operates, keep in mind that the sun sets pretty early. If your return trip is after 5pm, it's too dark to see anything outside the train.

Take a blanket to put on the seat as they are just wooden slats. Ask to trade with the people across the aisle for the return trip.

From Our Editors

Today, Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad and Museum stands as a bridge to the past, whisking passengers through timbered foothills, alongside mountain streams, and across wooden trestles aboard trains led by restored locomotives. But roughly 34 years ago, the company was just an idea bouncing around the head of Tom Murray Jr., who made it his mission to preserve the sights, sounds, and experiences of a bygone era.

With the help of a friend, and later, many volunteers, Tom established MRSR as a tourist train service, a title the company retains to this day. As a result, the last three decades have been filled with seasonal weekly excursions that send customers chugging around the forestry that unfurls in the shadows of Mt. Rainier. Volunteers still maintain the majority of the organization, and with every ride, passengers are reminded that railroads have linked the United States in a manner that airplanes, cars, and gas-powered pogo sticks never could. The museum's new expansion includes larger exhibits where visitors can experience the Railroad Logging Camp; a section of exhibits that highlight past life on the railroad logging camp in the early to mid 1900s. The museum also features exhibits such as the House of Gears and the Rod House where trains are on display. Visitors can also revel in in the restoration shop where they can witness a steam engine being built from the ground up.
