Celebrate Irish Style with our St. Paddy's Day Train and our Shamrock Train

All aboard for Irish fun! Join us on St. Patricks Day for a fun and festive celebration. 

Climb aboard the St. Patrick’s dinner train and enjoy your travels from the depot through the Chehalis River Valley while being served dinner in our dining car. Dress warmly as the trains are unheated.

Our Shamrock train is packed full of family fun, including green punch and an Irish-themed snack. Be ready for our “Get your Green on” Dress Up Contest! Did you know this American tradition dates back to the 1700’s? St. Patrick’s revelers thought wearing green made one invisible to leprechauns – fairy creatures who would pinch anyone they could see not wearing green. People began pinching those who didn’t wear green as a reminder that leprechauns would sneak up and pinch green-abstainers.

Please arrive 1/2 hour prior to departure. In respect to all passengers, late arrivals may not be accommodated.

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.
