Board the Snoqualmie Valley Railroad in North Bend for a 20-minute, 3.5 mile ride for a stop at the restored Snoqualmie Depot where Santa awaits.
Kids can whisper their wishes to Santa and receive a small gift. Then everyone steps into the Northwest Railway Museum's kitchen car for hot chocolate, coffee and cookies baked in the car's coal stove, before reboarding the train to return to North Bend.
