Washington - Anacortes Railway

Anacortes, WA - After sixteen years of hibernation, narrow-gauge Fidalgo Island steam is circulating once again. Now, as means of active preservation, a small group of citizens from various backgrounds have joined forces to revitalize the steam locomotive infrastructure that was, up until 1999, the Anacortes Railway, AR.

The AR today is dedicated to preserving the city’s unique rail history by creating a platform for steam operation and education.

At the center of the AR is the Forney type locomotive built by the Railway’s founder, Tommy Thompson Jr. With Tommy’s passing in 1999, what was once a vibrant part of the downtown Anacortes experience suddenly vanished. Our hope, with your help, is to recall this experience by placing the engine and passenger cars in operation once again. After much work and planning, the engine is once again a state certified boiler! However, we are still far from selling tickets and giving rides. The next task is to refurbish existing rail and re-locate the engine house next to the active rail.
