Chehalis-Centralia Railroad & Museum
The Chehalis-Centralia Railroad is one of only a few steam powered railroads in Washington State. The railroad operates seasonal excursion trains each year over approximately ten miles of track, offering both coach and dinner train service. Additionally, the railroad is caretaker of the #15, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyards No.6 & 9, and numerous other pieces of historic railroad equipment.
In 2016, the Chehalis-Centraila train #15 marked its 100th birthday, a remarkable feat. As the railroad looks forward, emphasis will be placed on how best to ensure the future for such historic equipment. It is our hope that the #15 and other equipment of the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad will still be operating not just ten years from now, but fifty years from now and beyond.
Take a scenic ride along the former Milwaukee Road track through the upper Chehalis River. Ride the rails as you enjoy lunch in the old-fashioned dining car!
