Celebrate like it's 1950!

Time travel back to the 50’s on board the historic Chehalis-Centralia Railroad. We encourage you to dress for the occasion, but a costume isn’t required.  Grab your poodle skirt or Capri pants and tie your hair in a ponytail with a chiffon scarf. Apply bright red lipstick and you are all set. Guys can wear tapered jeans and white socks along with a pair of saddle shoes. Now you’re ready for the party. Feast at the burger bar, with ice-cream sundaes and soda pop. Music and dancing will round out the atmosphere.

Important Message:

Greetings to Railfans and Friends of the Chehalis Centralia Railroad & Museum,

Rail excursion operations are closed for the winter season. We are pleased to announce the full repair of the track damage sustained in the 2022 flood has been completed. Funds are currently being sought through FEMA and SBA to reimburse the expenses incurred. In the meantime, projects to improve our facilities and the safety of our train operations are underway. The renovation of the #15 Steam Locomotive has resumed, pending the acquisition of funds.

We do not yet have an opening date for 2023 excursions. Once that date has been determined, tickets will go on sale and future events will be announced on this website and our Facebook page.
