We had a good day out with Eagle Cap. It’s a nicely restored train run entirely with volunteers. The train itself is in great shape and the view along the river makes for a fun day out. The scenery is pretty consistent along the way so it’s not a problem to get good views. They do not over-pack the train... More

Train went slow, river was way low, people on river side didn't switch for return trip, "historian" was only about ten minutes. But food was delicious, staff was friendly, saw some deer and a coyote and the car was the right temperature. Felt like my ticket price was for more than my entertainment. Save this passageway, let me spend four... More

Very disappointing train ride. We had three of us in our group and we were not able to sit together. Train traveled very slow and some scenery on only one side of train. Honestly, the scenery is better driving around the area. Personally, this was a waste of time and money for our group. On the positive side.... the staff... More

A group from our church signed up for a special train ride. There was a sheriff and a robber and girls from the saloon prancing through the train every so often. To see us off some cowboys rode their horses along side the train.

We went on the Mother's Day train. You don't see any roads/highways from the train - just great scenery and the river.

This trip along the river was purchased as a gift for me and we thought it was going to be fun and quaint. Instead, it was crowded, boring and the train only moved about 5 miles an hour for the whole time. They say it is where roads do not go and yet we saw houses and even cars across... More

I just found it to be overpriced, not comfortable, and a bit boring. The scenery is even better if you just drive.

3 1/2 hour train ride along the Grande Ronde River in Oregon where roads do not go. Very pretty scenery, wildlife sightings. The train is staffed by friendly volunteers from the area who love to share their tales. A nice little box lunch is served. It is not fancy, but we felt it was well worth the time and money....
