Ride on the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad. Gaze at the scenery along the nine-mile, former Milwaukee Road track through the scenic upper Chehalis River Valley. Crossing wooden trestles. Pass historic farms. Take a trip back in time.

Relax in the open car behind the mesmerizing sounds of a 1916-vintage steam locomotive. Sit down to a white-tablecloth, old-fashioned dining car experience. Step back to another age.

The Chehalis-Centralia is one of the few remaining steam-powered passenger railroads in Washington state. We invite you to come ride with us and enjoy the sights & sounds of steam railroading as it used to be.
