Many of our excursions such as our popular Coastal Excursion and Spring Splendor Trips have layovers in the middle of the trip. Our online ticketing system allows passengers to choose from a selection of return trips that allow you to choose how much time you want to spend in either Garibaldi or Rockaway Beach!

When booking excursions with variable returns times, select your One-Way OUTBOUND trip and add your tickets to your cart. BEFORE payment, click on the BOOK YOUR RETURN TRIP HERE banner. This will take you to One-Way RETURN trips available to you. Please select your tickets, add to cart, and then pay.

This allows you the flexibility to choose how long of a layover you desire, whether it be just a quick turnaround or spending the entire day enjoying the Oregon Coast!


Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad (OCSR) is a unique heritage railroading museum in that it not only has static displays of engines and historic artifacts but also provides interpreted train rides along the coast. OCSR tells the story of the area, gives information about the wildlife, and stresses the importance of practicing environmental conservation so that others may continue to enjoy the beautiful North Coast of Oregon.

OCSR commits itself to the education, preservation, and restoration of the logging history of the Pacific Northwest in a time when rare logging equipment is frequently lost forever. This organization collects those pieces and provides the necessary repairs and expert knowledge to get the pieces running again and back in service for all to enjoy.



Our daily operation relies upon dedicated volunteers and generous support from the public, like you. How can you help “Keep OCSR Rolling?” Purchase one of our season passes! A season pass entitles the holder to unlimited rides on selected excursions, 10% off merchandise, and advanced notice of special event trains.

My family had a wonderful time. We're so happy Santa came to visit! What a kind, patient Santa! I would've loved to be abe to crack the window for some fresh air, but thats okay. Such a magical ride for my little one. Thank you!

Fun time! Rockaway and Garibaldi are beautiful and not as "touristy" as several other coastal towns. Best to get there a bit early to ride in the outdoor cars where all the action is. On the way back we got stuck in the covered car and you can't hear any of the tour info back there.
