MANY KNOW THE iconic holiday story of The Polar Express, but do you know about the Oregon Coast version, the Candy Cane Express? Operated by the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad, the Candy Cane Express offers a true holiday experience aboard a real vintage train. On weekends between November 30 and December 22, the train will chug along between Garibaldi and Rockaway Beach and back for a one-hour trip.
Those who take the unforgettable journey find a steam-powered train festooned with holiday lights and decorated trees as they travel along the Oregon coastline. Passengers can savor hot chocolate and cookies and of course, visit one-on-one with Santa and Mrs. Claus. It’s a trip full of holiday cheer!
