Chehalis-Centralia Steam Train Brunch Tour: Saturday June 29, 2013
For the 2013 Tour Season, Audi Club NW is pleased to showcase a new and unique event on the 2013 tour schedule.
Audi Club Northwest, in cooperation with the Chehalis-Centralia Railroad, has chartered an entire steam powered passenger train for an exclusive brunch train ride in the morning on Saturday June 29. This event will also include an optional group drive around Mt Rainier National Park during the afternoon. The highlight of the day is the opportunity to ride behind a 1916 vintage steam locomotive, and enjoy brunch in a 1920’s era refurbished dining car. The train also includes an open-air viewing car, normally located just behind the engine, for great views during this journey through the Chehalis valley and alongside the Chehalis River. The train has been reserved for participants of this tour only. The train has limited capacity so please register early as this event is sure to be popular and will sell out.
