The Chehalis Centralia Railroad & Museum expects to resume train rides in March 2021. The exact date has not yet been announced. Safety precautions and health guidelines will be 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. 

As in the past year, we will resume excursions following state guidelines and protocol. Please watch our website and Facebook page for updates.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

A wonderful family tradition, our Santa Holiday Train is approximately 30 minutes long, with Santa visiting everybody during the train ride. Photo opportunities are available after each trip. Rides are offered at 11am and 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays beginning Nov 28 through Dec 20.

Regular Coach Rides: In the 1920’s passenger car with bench or table seating is $15 for all ages, 2yr and younger ride free, but must be on an adult lap. Each coach has reduced capacity, seating 25 passengers per car.

Premiere Seating Rides for small groups: Ride in comfort and privacy during your trip with Santa on the Santa Holiday Train. The Chehalis Centralia Railroad acquired a vintage railcar in 2017. This historic 1920’s Business Car offers four (4) unique settings for groups and families, each area is “distanced” from the other and has its own special character. Tickets may be purchased as a unit ensuring that your party is seated together in a comfortable and safe situation for your memorable ride with Santa. Here is what you can expect with the Premiere Seating:

Every Passenger in the Premiere Car, referred to as the #99 car of Seattle, Portland & Spokane Railway (SP&S) will enjoy the 30-minute round trip ride in comfortable seats with great views of the countryside. Candy Cane Cocoa is served while Santa visits with each child. 

We want everyone to be comfortable and have a wonderful experience. To manage your expectations we want to let you know that, as in 1950’s standards, there is limited heating and an RV style restroom is provided in the general seating coach connected to the 99 car. Aisles are narrow, so wheelchair seating is available only in the general coaches.

After your ride, visit our Depot Gift Shop which offers a variety of holiday blankets, socks, and scarves along with ornaments, toys and gift items that are exclusive to our passengers.

Parlor Seating: This area at the rear of the train commands a 180-degree view. Passengers are seated in overstuffed upholstered chairs with side tables. This space can be reserved for $120 and accommodates up to six passengers. 

Dining Room Seating: Guests will be seated in the private dining room at single dining room table. The table seats up to eight guests for $160. 

Two Stateroom Seating areas: Two rooms are available for up to four passengers. Four adults is a tight fit, but two adults and two children can be very comfortable. The sofa style seating rides just like a private berth room in railcars today.  The space is small, but the privacy is advantageous for many. Staterooms are $80 for up to 4 individuals. 

Please visit SteamTrainRide.com to purchase tickets.

Please arrive ½ hour prior to departure. Free Parking
