Chelatchie Prairie Railroad

Chelatchie Prairie Railroad

The Chelatchie Prairie Railroad is a heritage railroad in Yacolt, Washington.

The excursions travel through the historic logging country of beautiful North Clark County, Washington, from the town of Yacolt to Lucia Falls and returning, stopping for a half-hour at Moulton Falls Park. A trestle crosses the Lewis River.

Currently excursions are operated using an Alco 2-8-2T steam locomotive, a former Spokane, Portland & Seattle Railway Pullman car, an open-air car, and two cupola cabooses of Burlington Northern heritage. Upon leaving Yacolt, the train operates in reverse to Lucia, allowing passengers in one of the two cabooses to have a forward-facing view.

Excursions are typically scheduled for one or two weekends within a month, along with special excursions for the Halloween and Christmas holidays.

In addition to the Alco 2-8-2T the Battle Ground, Yacolt and Chelatchie Prairie Railroad owns a number of diesel locomotives (notably a number of Alco S-1, S-2 or S-4 locomotives) that are in storage.
