Welcome onboard! The historic Oregon Coast Crawler will do what few passenger trains have done the past fifty or so years; traverse the length of the breathtaking Tillamook Branch line from Banks to Tillamook in a daylong journey. In doing so, we travel through 10 tunnels, crossing over a number of tall trestles as we climb to 1835 feet then descend through the Salmonberry and Nehalem Canyons before reaching the coast.
Upon reaching Nehalem, our journey turns South as we wind our way along spectacular coastline, bays and coastal lakes. By the time our vintage train glides into the Tillamook depot, you will see why The Pacific Railway & Navigation Co. was nicknamed by many who worked the line, the "Punk, Rotten, and Nasty" railroad. No other railroad in North America offers the range of scenery found on the Tillamook Branch Line, and no train in recent years has made it possible to experience it all in a day, except the Oregon Coast Crawler.
But that is only half the fun! Upon arriving, we head off to the Tillamook Air Museum
for a hearty barbecue. You will also have plenty of time to explore this fine collection of vintage aircraft and various exhibits. There is even time to grab a short film or presentation in the Theater. What better way to end the day after experiencing the splendor of the mighty Coast Range, Salmonberry and Nehalem canyons, and the Oregon Coast!
