Well, it's hard to review something you take for granted w/out some chagrin. We have a cottage on the Oregon Coast and while I prefer to spend my time fishing that's not always in the cards. Many times a year I'm at the coast with my two kids when my wife is working weekends. This is how it started and... More

We are flatlanders, and don't get the chance to ride a train. This was a treat for us to be able to see the coast of Oregon from a steam train. There are picture opportunities abound from the train, and after arriving in Seaside. The train is operated by ALL VOLUNTEERS, and you can tell they enjoy doing it. Persons... More

My wife and I are train nerds, so this is just too cool for school, a real working steam engine, and in Rockaway they have fresh made popcorn with that cheesy stuff on it. Life doesn't get any better. And another great thing about Rockaway is their parking lot has power outlets so if our electric car had the range,... More

There are dinner train rides and special events. We took the basic ride between two coastal towns; 1/2 hour one way from Garibaldi to Rockaway Beach (or visa versa), 1/2 hour rest at the town, 1/2 hour ride back. The waterway, ocean, inlet views are beautiful and peaceful. You pass by a town in which many of the cottage-like homes... More

What a pleasure! Restored historic railroad runs right along the beautiful bay, stopping long enough to see the beach in Rockaway and get some salt water taffy or an ice cream cone - an absolute pleasure every time we have stopped! If you are traveling from Rockaway to Garibaldi, there is a Dairy Queen in Garibaldi for the stop-over ice... More

We enjoyed our scenic train ride from Garibaldi to Rockaway Beach. Our 2 year old daughter has been into trains and wanting to ride one and this was her first train ride. While a little short, it was perfect for her. Loved the open-air cars.

We had never taken the train ride, but had our motorhome group in town, so this looked like a good outing, everyone enjoyed the trip.

We had a beautiful day for a train ride. Highly recommend the open air car, out in the sun. People along the way are very friendly. Hope my GoPro video turns out. Next time we will spend more time in Rockaway Beach.

Train was not working the day before we were scheduled to take a trip..understand that this can happen with older historic trains but the weather was beautiful and it would have been a great trip. Did it several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it
