Let’er Boom: Celebrating 125 Years of Trains Then and Now Sept. 15th

The Woodinville Heritage Society and the City of Snohomish presents a celebration in honor of the first passenger service 125 years ago from Seattle to Snohomish via Woodinville on Sunday, September 15th. The Seattle, Lake Shore and Eastern Railroad ran its first train on September 19th, 1888 from Seattle to Woodinville and Snohomish.

The two day free event ties Woodinville and Snohomish together just as the rails tied them together 125 years ago. The trains put Woodinville and Snohomish on the map and made them into thriving cities. Today, the Eastside Rail Corridor still connects Woodinville and Snohomish with greater potential to come. This event celebrates 125 years of trains through speeders, speakers, train presentations, a mini-train ride for children, historical costumes, music, and other exhibits.

The Sunday celebration in Woodinville will be held from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. along the railroad tracks across from the Woodinville Post Office on Woodinville Snohomish Road. The Snohomish celebration will be held at Harvey Airfield and the City of Snohomish Visitor Information Center.
