Welcome to the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad and Museum!
Few steam-powered passenger railroads remain in the Northwest—and a visit to the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad is your chance to ride the longest continuously operating steam railroad in the Northwest, home to the world's largest collection of steam logging locomotives!
We are a non-profit heritage railroad that offers train rides through the forest and foothills south of Mt. Rainier. We have a rare collection of steam and diesel-electric engines steeped in history. Plan your visit to enjoy a two hour experience during our weekly excursions May through October or during a variety of special themed train rides throughout the year.
Our next special event, a family favorite, the "Bunny Express" slated for Saturday April 19 is currently sold out. There's still time to hop to it and reserve tickets for a relaxing steam train ride on Mother's Day Sunday May 11. Book your tickets here on our website or call 888-STEAM-11.
Our special event "SteamFest" originally scheduled for Saturday May 17 has been rescheduled and restructured into a new railfan event on Saturday July 19. Stay tuned for more details regarding the exciting new event, more information will be published very soon. Current ticketholders for the original event are invited to join us for a VIP reception on July 19, request a full refund or transfer their tickets towards another excursion. Please contact us directly at 888-STEAM-11 for personal assistance.
Book a steam powered adventure and you'll climb aboard living history. Your round trip train ticket includes time to explore the world's largest collection of steam logging locomotives on display and starting this summer you can see phase two of the new museum. Let the cry of the train whistle and the lull of the track engage your senses. While advance reservations are not required they are strongly suggested. Seating is limited, to guarantee availability book your visit today!
