Trip Information

Welcome aboard! The one and only Oregon Coast Crawler will take you on a memorable eight hour journey of exploration and beautiful Oregon scenery, all by a vintage train powered by a historic steam locomotive. Originating in the small fishing village of Garibaldi, we make a leisurely trip on the rails along the dramatic Northern Oregon Coastline affording fantastic panoramic views of both Tillamook and Nehalem Bays. Heading North, we pass through Rockaway Beach and stop at Wheeler for an early waterside lunch.


You will also have an hour to explore this interesting harbor town before reboarding the Oregon Coast Crawler. As we continue to Batterson, we will be traveling along the scenic Nehalem River.


On the return trip to Garibaldi, we will stop in Rockaway for 45 minutes, allowing passengers to stretch their legs and possibly pick up some taffy or an ice cream cone, both locally made in Tillamook County.


Our train will likely be pulled by the McCloud River Railroad #25, which is an Alco 2-6-2 steam locomotive featured in the movie 'Stand By Me'. We will also be using an open air car for unparalleled views and enhanced enjoyment, in addition to the two indoor coaches and a baggage car we will be running this trip.


All passengers will have a guaranteed seat, in either one of the enclosed cars, or in the outdoor car.  A minimum of three photo runbys have been scheduled and more will be added as time permits.


Whether a railfan, a photographer, or simply someone who enjoys a relaxing day on the Oregon Coast, the Crawler is sure to please.  As this trip is limited to less than 120 passengers, we highly recommend making your reservations ASAP.
