The City of Longview is proud to host the 40th Anniversary Amtrak Exhibit Train and various related activities on April 28th & 29th. The free exhibit showcases rail travel over the decades, displaying memorabilia including vintage advertising, past menus and dinnerware, period uniforms, and photographs. The event will take place at the Historic Longview Junction Train Depot, 905 Pacific Ave. It is free and open to the public from 10 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Saturday, April 28th, and again on Sunday, April 29th.
In addition to the exhibit train, the event will include activities for children, such as the “Chuggington Depot” featuring the popular children’s television series, stories, coloring, pictures, and more. Other activities will include live entertainment, music, and vendors.
Parking is limited at the train depot, so visitors are encouraged to park at the downtown parking lots located on Cotton Street between High Street and Fredonia Street. Free shuttles will be provided on Saturday and Sunday between the parking lots and the train depot.
