I gave this one star only because there was nothing less to choose. We recently took the excursion to Parksdell. We got an uncomfortable ride in a filthy, un-restored, cold train car that leaked water when it rained and windows fogged up so bad you could not see out and a 30 minute stop in town that consists of a...

We had never had the opportunity to take the Mt. Hood Railroad, so finally celebrated our 19 yr. Anniv. on Saturday four-hour Parkdale trip. For the additional $ we purchased first class (the upper view) and it was so well worth it! -Took lots of lovely pictures. -Somebody on the train provides information about the area and fun things to...

This is a fun way to see the north side of Mt Hood and the surrounding forest. Depending on the time of year, you will get a unique experience. for example, during the winter holidays you will enjoy the Polar Express. This has become an annual family event. This is a great trip for all ages.

We were in the dome for the excursion tour. Had the tuna salad and antipasti and both were very tasty. Service was excellent. Tea and coffee provided. Beer, wine and pop available for a charge. Loved having the tables and really enjoyed the scenery. Everything from orchards to Mt. Hood. Very relaxing ride. The Ice cream in Parkdale was a... More

We took my elderly parents on the Sunday brunch/lunch train. It's a relaxing 3/12 hr. ride through a beautiful part of Oregon. We saw pear orchards, vineyards, abandoned towns and other small populated towns while traveling through forests along the Hood River. We rode in the dome car and it was very comfortable. The narration on the first part of... More

Enjoyed the train ride. Very relaxing and got a nice view of Mt. Hood. Good way to pass the time while my husband and son where out riding trails. Staff were super friendly. Enjoyed the ride. Only one stop in Parkdale, which is a small small small town

This is an expensive jaunt on a train if you do the Polar Express ride! We did the Diamond Class seating (table configurations) in the evening because I thought it would be more magical, but they don't really have any good Christmas light displays along the route. Do not spend the extra money on the Sky Dome seats for the... More

I would recommend the murder mystery dinner train for a couple. It was a lot of fun. The meal was wonderful and the service was great. The stop in the little town by Mt. Hood was very nice. The murder mystery was a lot of fun. It did not feel like there was air conditioning on the train, however, so... More

We (I have a 4 year old, and 1.5 year old) were very excited for the Dinosaur Train, but were rather disappointed on arrival. The women at the ticket counter seemed out of sorts, and were very short with customers. When we got on the train, I was a little surprised that there were NO decorations other than plastic leaves.... More

Great ride through the orchards and up the mountain. Kids enjoyed the "robbers" and we enjoyed the narrations.
