Welcome to the Great Northern & Cascade Railway
The GNCR Presents the First Annual J.J. Hill Train Festival
Celebrating the Founder of the Great Northern Railway
Free Unlimited 1/8 Scale Train Rides!
10am-4pm Every Weekend Thru November 1st plus Holidays
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. When completed, the railroad will have over one mile of track, and have facilities to store member's equipment which may be used at any time by them.
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.
