This is the long-awaited train trip first planned for 2020!

“Woo-Woo!” Can you hear that train rumbling down the track?

By special arrangement, SITU has negotiated a group rail fare via Amtrak this May! Won't you come along?

We will depart as a group from Seattle's historical King Street Station aboard the southbound train headed for Centralia, WA. There is antique shopping to be done this day! For refreshment, there are a variety of local restaurants very nearby the shopping district. All are encouraged to wear their favorite Victorian or Edwardian attire for the day's outing. Be sure to wear appropriate shoes so that your feet will be comfortable walking or standing. Purchases made, we will reboard the train for our ride back to Seattle. All aboard?!?

  • There are also a number of eateries nearby, including the famous McMenamin’s “Olympic Club” restaurant.  SITU is NOT organizing a group rate luncheon nor a planned time to dine.  Everyone is free to eat when and where they wish, and with whom.

Special needs travelers:

According to Amtrak, if you have mobility issues and travel using a wheelchair or scooter, there is NO additional cost to bring it aboard!  You and your traveling companion may be seated on the main floor of the coach so you don’t need to climb stairs.  Wheelchairs and scooters will be secured during travel for safety.  Be sure to arrive well in advance for boarding accommodation.

VERY limited accommodation is available, so sign up quickly if you have special needs!

Reservation process:

  • Use the PayPal button provided below;
  • SITU will hold the funds until we have gathered at least 15 participants;
  • Should we NOT be able to meet the minimum requirement, your ticket amount will be returned to you by SITU.

Outside of Seattle:

All passengers MUST originate in Seattle at the King Street Station to obtain the special rate.  For those who wish to originate out of Tacoma or elsewhere, you will need to purchase your own full-fare ticket reservation directly from Amtrak.

Again, the special fare originates ONLY out of Seattle, and is the ONLY way to be guaranteed being seated with the group.
