We took the Murder mystery train and mostly enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent and we lucked out with the table mates we were assigned. The entertainment was entertaining, although because they were performing in 2 cars there were long gaps in the performance. The drink service was slow and could have been improved by simply having the... More

My husband and I took the Parkdale Excursion on the Mt. Hood Railroad in August. There is a good view of Mt. Hood when you reach Parkdale, the half way point. The day we went there was a lot of smoke due to the fires burning in the west but we were still able to see the mountain through the... More

I found out about it online and looked up the site. Since most of us hadn't been on a train since we were children, we wanted to enjoy the trip and see the sites. My husband can't walk very well due to a broken back so it was a win/win.

Thought (from the website) we were going to travel along the Columbia River, but just traveled about, not much scenery but the salmon dinner was excellent. Staff were friendly (even a bit overly friendly) and it was just "OK". As my friend said, and a long drive for an expensive dinner. . . .

We drove to Oregon as we love to vacation here; this trip is one of the last to OR for my elderly mother. I surprised her with tickets to their Champagne Brunch this past weekend. We could not have asked for better service, or more delicious food, and every staff member we encountered went above and beyond for us. My... More

I love taking the excursions on the Mt. Hood Railroad! They have a variety of them, so one is never bored! We have taken many seasonal excursions, and the Polar Express, and Trail Robbery. I have also taken my Campfire group on one. We stop in the little town of Parkdale for a ramble and ice-cream. Always a joyful experience.

Great little train ride with a stop in a all town. We sat in the observation car and had the box lunch. The staff was really nice including Alma who our hostess. The scenery was really beautiful and we enjoyed ourselves.

We rode the Mt. Hood Mystery Dinner train. It was a fun trip, the food was okay, the mystery entertaining, but we had a problem with the train office. We had two extra tickets which the office said they'd try to sell to someone else. They did sell them, we had two strangers at our table, but the railroad didn't... More

Wonderfull journey to Parksdale. Booked seats in First Class and was not disappointed-staff very pleasant, and service was great!! My Husband and I had pre ordered the Chicken Wrap and it was very tasty. Not a lot to do in Parksdale, however still a nice stop.

We did the Sunday brunch train in one of the Dome cars [ a big advantage for viewing the scenery, nice & cozy air conditioned car with a narrow, short stairway up to your table w/ cushioned bench seating, washrooms are below in the same car. There are no outdoor/open cars on this train. It was a very nice meal... More
