Welcome to Kitsap Live Steamers!

We are a non-profit, 7.5" gauge scale railroad located in the heart of Port Orchard. We offer rides to the public as well as provide demonstrations and promote education in railroad safety. Established in 1990, we are comprised of members from all over the world and of all different age groups and backgrounds.


Starting in April and ending in October, we run every 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month (along with some Sundays and holidays). Our train rides last around 12 minutes, and feature a fun and relaxing ride through woods, you never know what type of wildlife you will see! Trains run throughout the day and you will get to see a varied collection of motive power, from steam to diesel and electric! Did we mention steam??? Yes, we do have real steam engines pulling our trains. Our staff is friendly and ready to help assist you on and off the train as well as answer any questions you may have. During our off-season we continue to stay busy improving and building our wonderful little railroad. Members are able to utilize the railroad at their leisure and are always encouraged to participate in work parties and run days. We have something for everyone at KLS.


If you would like to be a part of our railroad, please check out the “membership” section of our website which describes the membership process. If you would like to come out for a wonderful ride through the woods, please check our schedule and always feel to reach out to us if you have any questions.
