Entertainment
“Mt. Rainier and Logging Museum brings the vibrant logging industry to life. Just minutes to Mt. Rainier, in Elbe, you can catch a steam train ride that will roll you through the misty forests on a 14 mile journey to Mineral. When you arrive you will have time to enjoy the Museum and view the worlds largest collection of steam locomotives. Whether you choose a steam excursion or one of the many special event trains (Washington wine express, Polar Express just to name a few) you will be taking the very same tracks used by pioneers, loggers, and settlers from over a century ago!”
