YACOLT — The Chelatchie Prairie Railroad will host its first train robbery of the season, the weekend of Sat., July 27 and Sun. July 28.
Attendees can ride along and be a part of the action as the “robbers” stop and board the train and make off with valuable coins and jewelry. Will the sheriff arrive in time to capture the thieves? The train makes a stop at Moulton Station to view Yacolt Falls and allow the passengers to visit with and perhaps have their photo taken with the robbers.
All trains depart at noon and 2:30 p.m. each day from the Chelatchie Prairie Station on N.E. Railroad Ave. in Yacolt, just south of Yacolt Rd. The excursion trains run to the Heisson area, through the tunnel, across the East Fork of the Lewis River with a stop at Moulton Station to visit beautiful Yacolt Falls.
