Mt Rainier Scenic Rail Road Elbe
Where are we going today?
Washington State has some amazing scenery, so why not explore it in style! Head to Mt Ranier Scenic Rail Road, and the whole family can experience a ride on a vintage locomotive, through the mountains, and the forests, and everything in between!
When you travel on the Mr Ranier Scenic Rail Road, it will be like you have just stepped back in time! You can travel through uninhabited forest, listening to that whistle that has been heard for years before you. Think of all the memories created by the locomotive since it first went onto the tracks.
Don't forget to get the camera out when you ride through the glacial fed Upper Nisqually River. It's pretty special!
At the top, you will be able to spend some time in the museum located in Mineral. Here, you can explore a collection of steam logging locomotives, and uncover fascinating stories of the real women and men that pioneered life into these railroad logging camps, as far back as a century ago!
These seasonal trips are so great for kids to not only see the state from another point of view, but also see some incredible scenery and wildlife, and actually learn history about a topic that actually happened in the very spot they are standing!
They are reminded that once railroads linked our nation and its people together in a way that airplanes or automobiles never have.

the people that work there are great. the tour was two hours long. really great sights, lots of trains for my son to look at. but, there were two things wrong with it. Bring snacks with you. The snacks they had on the train and at the stop were very limited. No atm's in the area if you were going to use cash. my phone had no signal if you wanted to put money on your card to pay for stuff. So plan ahead. have money on your card before you get there, cash, and snacks and drinks. Other then that it was awesome
