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 excursions until such time as our Steam Engine is repaired.

Safety precautions and health guidelines are in place for the benefit of both crew members and our passengers.

    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.

    — Chehalis Centralia Board of Directors
