Join the Northwest Railway Museum in Snoqualmie for our annual Day Out With Thomas event! Each year, the museum welcomes thousands of young rail fans and their families to meet Thomas the Tank Engine in person, experience the excitement of a working railroad, and enjoy themed activities at the historic Snoqualmie Depot and Train Shed Exhibit Hall! Dates this year: Friday - Sunday, July 8-10; July 15-17; and July 22-24.

Volunteers help with welcoming visitors, managing activity stations, and even with running our train. Shifts vary, but are from 7:15 am to 7:15 pm for train crew and 8:30 am to 6:30 pm for grounds crew. The Museum will provide lunch, snacks, water, and DOWT crew t-shirts. Join your community for this family fun event! These are great opportunities for students to complete service hours!

All volunteers must submit a volunteer application found at www.TrainMuseum.org or by contacting the Museum's Volunteer Coordinator. This must be done in advance of securing an event shift. Questions? Let us know!

Mission Statement

To develop and operate an outstanding railroad museum that provides the public a place to experience the excitement of a working railroad and to see and understand the significance of railroads in the development of the State of Washington and adjacent areas.

Description

Founded in 1957 as the Puget Sound Railway Historical Association, the Northwest Railway Museum became a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation in 1961. It is the largest railway museum in Washington State and is visited by over 120,000 people a year. The Northwest Railway Museum operates a five-mile interpretive railway, the historic Snoqualmie Depot, and the Railway History Center a modern campus which houses administrative offices, a state of the art archive, and hosts additional public programs including exhibits, docent led tours, and other educational programming.

Volunteers play a vital role in Northwest Railway Museum's public programs, including the interpretive railway program, collections preservation and restoration, and special events support. Each year, volunteers contribute more than 14,000 hours of volunteer time.

The Northwest Railway Museum's collection of railway equipment is one of the largest in the United States and is representative of Northwest railroading and includes diesel and steam locomotives, passenger and freight cars, specialized railway equipment as well as smaller railway artifacts such as dining car china, and tools, signage and lanterns.

The Museum owns and operates 5.5 miles of main line track and the fully restored Snoqualmie Depot, originally constructed in 1890. The Snoqualmie Depot is on the National Register of Historic Places and the King County/Snoqualmie Landmarks Register.
