Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad
Father's Day 2004

Pam, Steve, Mo and I joined up with Mom & Dad in Elbe, Washington to celebrate Father's Day.  This is the Northern terminus of the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad, which runs regularly scheduled excursion trains to Mineral Lake throughout the summer.   Visit the MRSR web site for complete information, including schedules, fares, special events, and an equipment roster.


      A view of Mt. Rainier from the Nisqually River trestle.  UPDATE (2006):  This trestle has been washed out by November storms, and the MRSR is now running excursions starting at Mineral Lake and heading South.  Check out the MRSR web site for details of the new route.
Another view of Mt. Rainier from the Nisqually River crossing.     The Father's Day Special included a complete BBQ lunch at the lake.

Mo peeks out from one of the passenger cars on our train. The train is turned on a wye at Mineral Lake for the return trip. Today, our train was pulled by Climax engine #10.  Click here for complete details about this locomotive from the Mt. Rainier Scenic Railroad web site.
