The holiday season is drawing near, and the Northwest Railway Museum in North Bend is gearing up for its festive events. For those looking to capture a bit of holiday magic, the museum has just the ticket.
The Yuletide Express event is already sold out, but there is still time to join the Santa Limited! This 2-hour festive train excursion is rapidly becoming a must-attend event for families in the region.
Guests are invited to board decorated antique coaches in North Bend to travel to the Train Shed Exhibit Hall. As the train chugs along, passengers can immerse themselves in the spirit of the season with holiday decorations, a hot cup of cocoa and a cookie in hand.
But the merriment doesn’t end there. Upon reaching their destination, children can visit Santa in the restored Chapel Car, where each child will receive a small gift. The trip also includes tours of a Weyerhaeuser Caboose and seasonal children’s crafts.
However, if you’re hoping to secure a spot for your family, you might want to hurry. With 40% of the event already sold out, the tickets are going fast.
