Kitsap Live Steamers is a group of scale outdoor railroad enthusiasts operating a non-profit 7 1/2 inch gauge railroad at South Kitsap Regional Park. Rides are given to park visitors on a donation basis and are handicap accessible. This facility has given the community and the Puget Sound area a unique educational and recreational opportunity that is not otherwise available nearby.
We currently provide rides on the second and fourth Saturday's of each month, April through October, weather permitting. Train operations are from 10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. Departures are from our passenger depot near the Jackson Ave. play field, and riders traverse about 4000 feet of ground level railroad track, one trestle and one bridge. Maintenance and unloading facilities are also available.
Visitors are welcome to observe the preparation of live steam locomotives owned and operated by our club members. These locomotives are not toys; they are miniature steam locomotives that function exactly as their prototypes did in the 19th and 20th centuries. Ask at the depot for a tour of the Kitsap Live Steamers steaming bays and yard area. Please note that for safety, tours are limited to six visitors at a time and must be escorted by a Kitsap Live Steamers member.
