The Chehalis-Centralia Railroad has resumed train rides in 2021. Safety precautions and health guidelines are in place for the benefit of both crew members and our passengers. 

As we adapt our seating arrangements this year due to COVID19, we will do our best to accommodate your needs. We are following guidelines issued by Washington State. Please be aware that due to the close proximity of our tables, fixed bench seating and limited space, we will not always be able to guarantee 6 ft distancing while you are on the train. We will adhere to the Washington State capacity policy requested at the time of your excursion. We do require masks, unless you are enjoying a meal.  Outside seating and cross ventilation, by opening windows, is available. The indoor cars are unheated. Because we want to ensure your safety, we discourage those who are vulnerable, at risk, or ill,  from riding the train until COVID19 concerns meet your own health issues and expectations. 

Please note: The Steam Locomotive #15 repairs are underway. No date has yet been set to return the locomotive to service. Our Diesel Engine #6 will pull the train on summer excursions until such time as our Steam Engine is repaired.
