The Northwest Railway Museum has two Santa Train experiences this winter, and here’s what to expect | So Good News
Choo Choo, Santa Claus is coming to town! Well, at least to Snoqualmie. The Northwest Railway Museum hosts their annual Holiday Train and this year you can choose between two experiences. Here’s what you can expect from this year’s Santa train.
The first train experience is the Yuletide Express. The 25-minute holiday excursion is a great alternative for those who are unable to commit to a longer train journey while still getting all the holiday joy. The tour departs from and returns to the historic Snoqualmie Depot. You can expect a seasonally decorated train with antique coaches and a fantastic view of the river valley.

The other train experience is the Santa Limited. It is a 2-hour holiday excursion that begins at and returns to the North Bend Depot. You get to drive to the Railway History Campus and see the inside of the seasonally decorated Train Shed Exhibit Hall. Some of the possible activities include visiting Santa in the restored chapel car and traveling on a Weyerhaeuser Caboose.
Although these train tours do not take place until late November and into December, they sell out every single year. So we strongly recommend buying tickets ASAP. Have fun!
