The North Bend Train Depot, located in William Henry Family Park, was constructed in 1988. Also, there is a well landscaped lawn area with benches and picnic table inside of the park. The depot serves as the eastern terminus of the historic Northwest Railway Musuem for the popular tourist train. Furthermore, the tourist trains run from April to the Christmas seasons between Snoqualmie and North Bend.
The facilities of the depot include a ticket office, meeting rooms, and restrooms. Also, the depot is available for reservations and is a great option for business and community meetings, workshops, and training sessions.
The regular trains run April through October on Saturdays and Sundays when there’s no special train like Day Out with Thomas or the Santa Train. This train stops in North Bend three times each day. You may board in Snoqualmie, North Bend, the Railway History Museum, or the Snoqualmie Falls PSE Hydroelectric Museum and return on any train.
The Santa Train starts in North Bend unlike many of the other trains so this is a busy time for the North Bend train depot. It runs Saturdays and Sundays for 4 weekends from Thanksgiving weekend through mid December. There will be one Victorian Santa Train on a Friday in December. Needless to say, parking is at a premium in North Bend near the depot on Santa Train days.
The Halloween Storytelling Train runs the two weekends prior to Halloween. It runs in the cycle Snoqualmie – North Bend – Train Museum – Snoqualmie Falls. You may board at the Railway Museum, North Bend, or the Train Shed.
The Day Out with Thomas doesn’t go to North Bend on its regular run. However, it does come up for an occasional visit to please the locals before the big two weekends in July.
