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.
Greetings to Railfans and Friends of the Chehalis Centralia Railroad & Museum,
We are so excited to start 2023 Operations that we are planning a few activities while we are awaiting the necessary permission from FRA (Federal Rail Administration) to resume train rides for this year. Please Click on the “Night of Dinner and Music” Event. Tickets are now available for a special “Night of Dinner & Music” on March 25 at 5:00pm. This is a stationary event on the Dinner Train — At the Depot.
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 will resume, pending the acquisition of funds.
— Chehalis Centralia Board of Directors
