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 to take on water, and an exciting runby or two.
You will have about 45 minutes to explore Wheeler before reboarding the Oregon Coast Crawler bound for the highlight of our trip; the Mohler Trestle. Which is our turn around location this year.
On the return trip to Garibaldi, we will stop in Rockaway for 45 minutes or so, 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 that we will be running this trip.
All passengers will have a guaranteed seat, in one of the enclosed cars. A minimum of three photo runbys have been scheduled and more will be added as time permits.
The Oregon Coast Crawler is sure to pleas railfans, photographers, and anyone who wants to spend a relaxing day on the Oregon coast. Being this trip is limited to less than 120 passengers, we highly recommend making your reservations ASAP.
Please not that the Saturday trip is full. But you can still book space on the Sunday trip which will be running September 30, 2018.
