Cab Rides


Come Ride in the Cab!

Give the gift of a lifetime with a cab ride on the Chehalis-Centralia. Up to two lucky passengers will get to experience what it is like to ride in the cab of a working steam locomotive built in 1916. It’s an opportunity to feel the essence of steam, up close and personal.

Cab riders get one round trip in the cab of Cowlitz, Chehalis & Cascade No. 15, a working 2-8-2 “Mikado” type steam locomotive 100 years old. Our friendly crew will happily answer questions and show the lucky passenger how the engine is operated. At the end of a memorable trip, each cab ride passenger will receive a certificate documenting their experience, signed by the train’s Conductor and Engineer. The $40 fee covers fare and certificate.

For any lover of railroads, it is the ultimate gift. And hey, you can always buy one for yourself, too!



Available on any regularly scheduled train. Please see ourĀ  SCHEDULES AND FARES PAGE for dates and times.

Duration: ~1.5-2 hours


All riders: $50.00

Due to the limited size of the cab space, we can only accommodate two non-crew cab riders at any given time.

Please call 360-748-9593 for further information about obtaining cab rides.


Due to the age and configuration of our vintage steam locomotive, accessibility for people with disabilities is significantly limited.
