New Route

Map of new route

Current Route

Due to track damage at the Nisqually River bridge, we'll be operating on our Mineral to Morton route during the 2008 season.

This route travels over the beautiful stretch of track that heads up into the foothills of Mt. Rainier to the Divide between Mineral Lake and Morton.  The staff and volunteers of the railroad hope you will join us on one of our adventures.

Mineral to Divide

Mineral to Divide Excursion

The train departs from our Mineral, WA restoration facility on a run past Divide, WA to the largest trestle on the line. This is an 18 mile round trip, and takes approximately 2 to 2-1/2 hours.

During the ride you'll travel through forests and past the historic logging town of Mineral. You'll cross several small trestles over mountain streams, a large trestle over the Tilton River, and the highlight of the trip, a huge curved wooden trestle near milepost 59. At Divide you'll have a view of Storm King Mountain. The engine will move to the other end of the train, then continue the trip to the big trestle.

 

Mineral to Morton

Wooden Trestle on Morton Route

This is a 30 mile round trip lasting about 4 hours. The train will cover the same route as the trestle run, and continue on to Morton. This route is in the forest for much of the trip. Featuring steep grades and sharp curves, the locomotives work even harder on this trip, with a long climb up to Divide on the way back from Morton.

One of the highlights of this trip is the tall wooden trestle south of Divide. There are two large curved trestles on the route, as well as several other bridges. Be sure to bring your camera!

We operate trains to Morton on a regular basis, see our schedule page for the next trip.
