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.

Buy them online at www.train museum.org or call 425-888-3030, ext. 7202.
Catch the train at the North Bend Depot, 205 McClellan St.
Or take a ride through the woods with Santa aboard Lake Whatcom Railway's old passenger train.
