Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad
Plumes of steam puff from the locomotive as it travels along the Pacific coast. A mountainside blanketed in evergreens towers above the vessel as waves pound against the boulder-strewn shore below. The nonprofit Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad serves as both a living history museum and excursion operator for the state's forested coastline. Antique locomotives that hearken back to the region's logging origins take guests on waterside excursions as a crew feeds the engines recycled motor oil and coal-flavored candies. Seasonal events bring about the railroad’s dinner trains, which treat guests to four-course meals as they gaze at the sparkling water of Tillamook and Nehalem Bays.

“Get there early and be ready to board if you want a seat in the open car. It fills up quickly. On a nice, sunny day, these are prime seats. The 'glass top' car was next to fill up. We found seats in the enclosed car and really enjoyed this quick trip along the coast. We wanted a flavor of what training riding was like, and this was just the ticket. ”
