Snoqualmie is one of 37 stops during a national tour which features a life size Thomas the Tank Engine.  It is the only stop in the State of Washington.  The Northwest Railway Museum serves about 15,000 children and their families each year.  The tour has stopped in Snoqualmie since 2002 and is the museum’s largest annual event.

The event is designed for children age 2-5 years.  It’s rare to find a live event designed for this age group.  Ride with Thomas the Tank Engine for 25 minutes  and hear Thomas greet his fans! Attending children will also have the chance to talk with a railway engineer and learn how trains work.  A unique Snoqualmie feature is a “Kalamazoo” motor car pulling a trailer that children and families ride on.  This was how loggers traveled to and from their logging sites on railroads.   There is storytelling, video viewing, live music, and other children’s activities.
