This train follows the Grande Ronde River, then at the confluence with the Wallowa River, it goes up that one. The three old passenger cars show their age, but they are constantly being restored. Up the branch, a bunch of robbers on horseback shoot up the train and stop it. Great fun. Robbers, saloon girls, and even a preacher.
The trip has great views of the area and the staff is interesting and knowledgable .we loved the opera unity to visit with other train enthusiasts and the opertunity to see wildlife along the river.

Save this passageway, let me spend four... 更多
