2020 Scheduled Trips have been cancelled.
Please see the special notice concerning the 2020 season.
Due to government restrictions and concerns for the health and safety of our passengers and crew, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all rides of the 2020 season. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and will return to a typical year in 2021. Please click to view the full SPECIAL NOTICE.
Schedule page here.
Our season generally starts with the popular Mother’s Day Brunch in May. All rides feature beautiful views of the river, towering open and forested ridges and jagged basalt cliffs. Passengers are free to carefully walk through the train in transit and enjoy the view from the open vestibules and baggage car. Youth 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Please wear closed-toe shoes and be aware that there will be side-to-side rocking when the train is moving. The Elgin Depot has a ticket counter, gift shop, multi-stall rest rooms and ample parking. 541.437.3652
Sometimes things occur beyond our control that cause us to have to make changes to the train schedule, including, in very rare instances, even cancelling rides. We do everything in our power to keep this from happening, but if it should, the price of your ticket purchases will be refunded. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you on the train.
To book a seat, please select “Book Online“. Our depot attendant can help if you need additional travel information, lodging arrangements or if you would like to purchase a gift certificate.
Charters & Groups: Are you looking for a fun group activity or venue for your special event? Entire cars can be reserved for groups, or charter the whole train for an unforgettable special event.
Regardless of whether you are on a charter or a scheduled trip, our car hosts help make your time on the train enjoyable.
Service dogs: We do not allow pets on the train. However, service dogs, with special training to assist their handler, are welcome. To smooth the process of checking in at the depot and to help our volunteers seat you and your service animal, please let us know in advance that your dog will be accompanying you. We ask that the dog wear a vest, so our volunteers and fellow passengers know they are on the job. They must be on a leash at all times.
