Snoqualmie Railroad Days 2012

Snoqualmie Railroad Days 2012 was held August 17 - 19 in historic downtown Snoqualmie.  More than 11,000 visitors enjoyed live music, an art show, the grand parade, lots of trains, a car show, great food and more!  Success of the event came from a very supportive community, scores of dedicated volunteers, generous sponsors, and great weather.  Why not be part of next year's successful event?  Please drop us a note on our contact page to learn about ways you can be involved.

A Lego locomotive zooms around a
display created by Dan Parker.
More than 3,000 people lined Railroad
Ave. to watch the grand parade on
Saturday morning.

Jim and Lisa Schaffer
were the parade's grand
marshalls.  Jim retired as
Snoqualmie's police
chief in June. 

Motor car rides took passengers to the
Museum's new Train Shed exhibit
building for a tour.

The Seafair Pirates took
over locomotive 11 in
search of places to plunder.
A pristine '66 Corvette made an ap-
pearance at the car show.
Singers from the band Brian Vogan &
his Good Buddies perform their original
music on the Skagit flatcar stage at
the Snoqualmie Depot.

Reconditioned string
instruments were offered
for sale by a non-profit
at one of the vendor booths

Thousands toured the car show that was
set up along Railroad Ave. on Sunday.

What would Railroad Days be without
model trains?

Scarves of every color filled this booth!

Spike, Looks like a fun event! Maybe we can schedule our summer trip to coincide with Railroad Days... We love the NW but it's a long way from East Tennessee. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
