Give BIG to steam!

Steam at Snoqualmie Railroad Days!  That's the plan for this coming August 15 - 17 when the Santa Cruz and Portland Cement locomotive 2 will travel to Snoqualmie to operate under steam during the annual town festival.  Celebrating 125 years of excursion train service to Snoqualmie Falls, the 1909-built Porter locomotive will add considerable excitement to the working railway in the upper Snoqualmie Valley.  Your contributions during GiveBIG on Tuesday, May 6 will help make this plan a reality, but they must be made through the Museum's page on The Seattle Foundation's web site here.  Contributions up to $5,000 will be partially matched from The Seattle Foundation's stretch pool too, and may even qualify for a bonus contribution called a Golden Ticket!

GiveBIG is the annual charitable giving event organized and supported by The Seattle Foundation.  Each of more than 1,600 charities including the Northwest Railway Museum are eligible to receive contributions and their pro rata share of the stretch pool received between midnight and midnight on Tuesday, May 6, 2014.

Help bring a real, live steam locomotive to Snoqualmie Railroad Days by participating in GiveBIG on May 6!
