Board your coach from the platform at the historic Elbe Depot; as you enjoy the ride through the Nisqually Valley and cross rivers and streams in the foothills of Mt. Rainier, attendants will share stories of the Pacific Northwest’s pioneer settlement and growth. Travel through the logging heartland of Cascadia pulled by vintage locomotives that have transported people and goods through these mountains for over a century.

Your fare includes steam train ride, museum admission, scrumptious BBQ feast at the museum and event grounds, and dessert served during the train ride home. Gluten-free options available.
