We feel it was done right in the First Class Car- I can't speak for Coach or Diamond. This December we treated our daughter and her family to a ride on the Polar Express. We found the coach to be in excellent condition, the staff dressed up as the characters from the movie, and the scenery (including our arrival at... More

My family really enjoyed this ride. We went during apple season. IT was really nice to have your choice of big juicy apples when you get to the top.

I am sorry we wasted $520 and an one hour and twenty minutes for this train ride (plus the 2 1/2 hours round trip to drive to the station & back). We went last year and were so happy with the experience we invited more guests to join us this year - we were embarrassed we did! It was a... More

They were spontaneous and amusing. In particular we loved the conductor! We rode the diamond class with the dome Windows. The seats were... More

The trip starts in a grand old train station. You board onto vintage coach cars, I recommend the upper deck vista car with a served meal and bar. The train winds up along the Hood river then switch backs up to a beautiful area with orchards and vineyards and fields of lavender all with a view of mount hood. You... More

Very nice trip as part of the Mt. Hood experience. Windows need replacing on coaches as they have become blurry, otherwise a great family outing.

We took our Mom on the Western Bandit Robbery train excursion. She really enjoyed it! The seats were comfy, the scenery was beautiful and the rocking of the train was so relaxing. The characters came thru our train to "rob" us, followed by the law and a "shady, swindling" magician. He was excellent! The characters spent a lot of time... More

We had the opportunity to experience the murder mystery dinner trip. The food was great, and the staff and service was fabulous. We had a wonderful time.

Great way to relax for a few hours, had some beer & wine, sat back and watch the scenery roll by. Ride the upper dome, sat with a nice couple from Washington. Its railroad customer in dining cars to fill up all seats and sit with strangers if needed, great way of meeting new people. Food onboard was good but... More

My wife and I did the western train robbery ride and we had a very good time. We were in the diamond class in the upper dome which I would highly recommend for the better view and the lunch that is included. The actors in the train robbery were a lot of fun and the magician that came through the... More
