Enjoy The View From Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad

All aboard for beautiful fall scenery! Join Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad for a scenic excursion along the Nehalem River to view the changing of the seasons first hand. The scenery is breathtaking as the leaves change color and fall to earth as your roll along behind one of our historic diesel locomotives to Batterson. Perfect for families, this special excursion departs from Wheeler and is a unique way to view the splendor that is Oregon Coast in the fall.
The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad is a registered non-profit museum organization (501c3). It is an all volunteer organization that operates over the former Southern Pacific and Port of Tillamook Bay Railroads. It operated regularly scheduled trains between Gairbaldi and Rockaway Beach in the summer months and special event trains throughout the year over the rest of the line. The line extends from the Tillamook Air Museum blimp hangar on the South side of Tillamook through Garibaldi, Rockaway Beach and Wheeler where the tracks turn to the East and head up into the coast range along the remote and breathtaking Nehalem and Salmonberry River canyons.

Dan Haag
Born and raised in the great white north of Minnesota, Dan Haag felt the pull of the north Oregon Coast in the early 90s. Finding that rain never needed to be shoveled, he married an Oregon girl and settled in Manzanita, where he works as director of the Manzanita Visitors Center. He is also a freelance writer whose work has appeared in a variety of state and national publications. He spends his free time wandering the area’s many trails, supporting the Oregon wine and beer industry, perusing coastal bookstores, and chasing his black Labrador, Lilo, along the beach.
