Family of four(7,11) had a very fun and relaxing time. On time and was the perfect distance. They do offer a evening diner ride, but we went to the daytime ride. Lots of views and even got pictures of Mt. Ranier in background

This modest railroad and museum, and the town it operates from, is notable for the friendliness of its crew and staff and residents. This lifts the experience of a visit to Chehalis from the ordinary to the most enjoyable level. Well done!
