We want on the railroad back in September and were disappointed in the event. We went for the sky dome cabin (don't do this) but it was so busy we went to the middle class cabin which was empty. The journey itself is nothing special,...More

Nice trip to see the countryside. Lots of recorded message in the beginning of the trip which explained the history of the area. The little stop was excellent and had plenty of places to eat and just relax. Highly recommend

We took the 22 mile ride on the Mt. Hood Railroad, with our 7 and 10 year old daughters in tow. We chose the Wester Train Robbery trip, which was a fun diversion during the trip. The cast was very friendly, and paid special attention...More
