Welcome to the Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum

Mt. Rainier Railroad and Logging Museum looks forward to welcoming you aboard living history in Summer 2018!

THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride season has come to an end, the coaches are tucked away for winter, and springtime brings the sounds of the machine shop humming with exciting restoration projects! Our railroad family would like to thank everyone who climbed aboard living history, explored the museum, and reignited America’s love of the rails with us in the past year. We hope you enjoyed the sounds of the Polson #70 and the Hammond Lumber Co. #17 ringing through the hills this year, and we look forward to bringing more iron horses out onto the rails in the future. From family holidays to historical excursions, we cherished the opportunity to be a part of your 2017 memories! Steam-powered adventures for 2018 begin on Memorial Day Weekend. We look forward to sharing the excitement of events like the Washington Wine Express, Oktoberfest Express,PEANUTS™ The Great Pumpkin Patch Express and THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride with you again in 2018!
