The GN&C Railway offers free train rides to the public as well as a railroad education program. The Railroad operates May through October, every weekend plus holidays. We currently have over 2,700 feet of track. We are working on our second line and when completed we will have 4,000 feet of track..

The GN&C Railway has one locomotive (2-6-0) and plus ten riding cars, built by it's volunteers in addition to all the locomotives owned by our members that they use to give rides to the public.

In order to operate this railroad, a volunteer organization was formed, the "Great Northern & Cascade Railway". The Great Northern & Cascade Ralway is a Washington State Non-Profit Charity. Members of this organization will be in operational control of all of the aspects of the railroad. This will include the operation of the trains, building of additional track, turntable, and steam-up areas, construction of railroad equipment storage and support buildings, crowd management. All of the above construction is financed from by donations received from operations and the gift store.

If you are interested, please email Lloyd Albin at lloyd@gncrailway.org, or call and leave a message at (360) 282-6676 so that you can be notified of the time and place of an organizational meeting planned in the near future.
