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!

Four of us travelled from Victoria BC, Canada to Chehalis to ride that steam train! It's our 3rd steam train ride (others in BC,) in 3 years. This was more quaint than Kettle Creek Valley or Port Alberni but they were super friendly and it...More

We were given a gift certificate for the mystery train ride. It was interesting and ok to do one time, but the food was not particularly good, and although wine was advertised as something one could purchase, there was none available when we asked. We...More
