“Not long enough!!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

We had a wonderful ride from Rockaway Beach to Garibaldi and back on the Scenic Railroad. The ride was very scenic and interesting. Kids would love this, especially looking out for little Haystack Rocks and looking at the wonderful views. We were able to sit outside on the return and that really made a huge difference especially for the kids. Half an hour is spent in Garibaldi where the best place for refreshments seemed to be Dairy Queen across the road. We could have done with another half an hour, even if it had cost a little more. It was a lovely morning excursion!

“Fun for the whole family.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

The scenic railroad ride is a pleasant ride through a beautiful part of the Oregon coast. It is not a long ride but is a nice round trip ride, with stopovers in Garibaldi and Rockaway Beach. The train will be a thrill for any train enthusiast. A lot of the scenery can be seen from the highway but the experience of being on the train, being the closest to the ocean and a good speed to be able to appreciate the scenery makes this a very worthwhile trip for the family.

“A lot of scenery and history”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

The ride was peaceful and relaxing, with the brunch tasty and filling. All the staff were knowledgeable about the history and various sights and willing to give extra time to answer questions. It would have been even better if the conductor had a microphone, as the conversation level often made it difficult to hear all he said. A lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Nothing to dislike about this trip. We really enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We had fun just visiting with the passengers on the trip and got lots of pictures.
