Day Out With Thomas Returns

May 21, 2021

The Northwest Railway Museum is excited to announce that Thomas the Tank Engine will return to Snoqualmie this July!

The Museum has been hosting Day Out With Thomas for 20 years, but this year's event is going to look a little different. Perhaps the most exciting development is that the festivities will be held for the first time on the Railway History Campus (RHC). Guests will begin their visit by boarding the train at the Snoqualmie Depot to make the journey to the RHC. Once there they will disembark for an hour-long adventure of activities. Afterwards, they will board the train to experience the ride with Thomas the Tank Engine to the top of Snoqualmie Falls and back!

If you have small children in your life, we invite you to join us for this year's special Day Out With Thomas fun! Tickets and information are available online now. On behalf of the Museum, thank you for your continued support.

Executive Director
