We rode the train to Odell and it was a fun way to spend a few hours. The staff was great and there was commentary and some history on the area the train was running through but I would've really enjoyed some history on the train itself. The train ride was very wobbly so prepare yourself if you get motion... More

Majority of train ride in and around warehouses. Lunch expensive, not drink included. The staff was very friendly and office accommodated us when we ran into a problem. A one time experience

We were downstairs and did not order food. But we could watch the waiters tramp through our car with Styrofoam boxes on their way to serve food. The windows were dirty and opaque from age. We got wet towels to clean the dirt off but still could not see out of them - not that there was anything to see... More

Food and service was decent. In fact that was really the only good thing about the brunch excursion. It only goes up to Odell instead of Parkdale like it used to. It really should not be called Mt Hood RR because there are very few opportunities to see the mountain. Don't waste your time and money and go for a... More

The train ride was beautiful and restful. The dinner was awesome, what an excellent chef. Laloni and Debi were the best, their smiles and attentiveness were made the ride well worth it.

We had dinner in the observation car for our anniversary. 3 course meal that was beyond fabulous! The train was well maintained. The staff was so attentive, and the view was amazing! We would do this 2 1/2 hour excursion again in a heartbeat! Our menu: Appitizer Salad with rolls Filet of beef with portobello mushrooms, and fingerling potatoes Blackberry... More

The food was good and the staff was wonderful, but the cost seemed high for the trip. There was no entertainment, or description of where we were or history. The staff answered questions and was great, but some information over the speakers would have added greatly.

We spent two hours of day at the Columbia Gorge on the rails, actually about 40 minutes each way at 30 at the destination. Many lovely views, but unfortunately not of Mt. Hood, as the train had a curtailed run. We enjoyed the Hood River cherries.

The train stops in Odell for one half hour after backing up the entire way. Track is nauseatingly wobbly. Most passengers were asleep upon arrival, including children. Improvements could make this enjoyable. One star is too generous. Also, the fare is overpriced.

Everyone in our party was disappointed on this trip. First, the windows on our train car were pretty dirty making it difficult to see out of. Second, if you could see through the window there was so much vegetation right along the track it made it hard to see much beyond that. We did not see much of the orchards,... More
