Welcome to the Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum

Status Update: 2016 was a good year for Mt Rainier Railroad as we introduced new products and new events but we can’t wait to show you what is in the works for 2017. Check back soon for our excursion season and special event schedule. We’re almost ready to begin booking tickets!

Located in the small town of Elbe in beautiful Washington State is a heritage railroad south of Mount Rainier National Park. Passengers enjoy steam train rides through the forest and across the glacial fed Upper Nisqually River to a museum located in Mineral, Washington. Museum exhibits offer a chance to explore a comprehensive collection of steam logging locomotives and discover the stories behind the pioneers of railroad logging camps in the early to mid 1900’s. Excursions and museum visits are scheduled May through October with a thrilling new holiday event this winter! There are exciting things happening at the railroad and museum this year. We appreciate your interest and hope to welcome you aboard living history soon.
