Fodor's Review

Vintage cars line a paved path along Railroad Avenue, with signs explaining the origin of each engine, car, and caboose on display, and more history and memorabilia exhibited inside the former waiting room of the stunning restored Snoqualmie depot. Several times a day, on weekends only, a train made of cars built in the mid-1910s for the Spokane, Portland, and Seattle Railroad travels between Snoqualmie Depot and North Bend. The 75-minute (round-trip) excursion passes through woods, past waterfalls, and around patchwork farmland. Crowds of families pack the winter Santa Train journeys and the midsummer Railroad Days rides, when a helicopter drops balloons and prizes over the annual parade.
