Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad

Transport yourself back to the heyday of steam locomotive logging on a more than two-hour train ride through the foothills of Mount Rainier. Hear the train whistle and feel the rumble of the tracks as you pass over tall wooden trestles, through the dense forest, and over rushing rivers.

Located near Mount Rainier, this operating railroad museum features a one of a kind collection of authentic operating steam locomotives. The railroad preserves a hands-on history of the logging railroads that were in such vogue a century ago. The line offers frequent trips during the summer months, and fall color, winter snow, and other specials during the course of the year. This line is the last true Cascades Range railway.
