The Chehalis Centralia Railroad & Museum is following the guidance of the State of Washington and Lewis County by requiring masks for those over 3 years old and requesting social distancing of our passengers. Passenger capacity had been adapted to ensure a safe and healthy journey on the Railroad. Safety precautions and health guidelines are in place for the benefit of both crew members and our passengers. Crew is required to take daily temperature readings. If you feel you are not healthy, we will refund your tickets and ask you to return another time. Lewis County is currently in Phase 3.
