Tillamook - Garibaldi

GaribaldiTrain

1911 was a big year for Tillamook County, for that was the year modern rail transportation arrived. The Pacific Railroad and Navigation Company (otherwise known as the ‘Punk, Rotten and Nasty’), incorporated in October 1905, punched a rail line through the Coast Range and down the Salmonberry Canyon, ultimately meeting up with the other end of the line under construction from Tillamook northward through Bay City, Garibaldi, Rockaway Beach and Wheeler. The first train from Portland arrived in Tillamook in October 1911, and soon tourists were flocking to the beach.

Nearly 100 years later, the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad continues to operate regular passenger services to enjoy the spectacular Oregon Coastline between Garibaldi and Rockaway Beach at a leisurely speed of only 8 mph.

Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad is the brain child of President Scott Wickert. It has been his vision of a steam railroad and a logging/antique railroad equipment museum that has brought the group together. His goal is simply to keep these pieces of history available for the public to learn from and to appreciate. In 2002 Scott Wickert entered an agreement with the Port of Tillamook Bay RR (POTB) to bring his steam locomotive, CLC #2, to Tillamook to begin steam train operations in 2003. The geared Heisler locomotive celebrates its 100th birthday in 2010!

Step back in time and experience a bit of yesteryear. Enjoy the beautiful Oregon Coast line by riding the rail behind a 1910 Heisler Steam Locomotive. This scenic trip chugs along Tillamook Bay and gives passengers views of the ocean. Great for all ages, this trip will give you a glimpse into history.
