The Newport 60+ Activity Center is inviting people to step back in time on Thursday, July 23, with a trip aboard a historic steam locomotive out of Garibaldi.

The 90-minute, round-trip excursion on the Oregon Coast Line meanders by Tillamook Bay, the Pacific Ocean, Nehalem Bay and through the Nehalem River Valley, passing by many lakes and gorgeous panoramic views that can only be seen by rail.

The Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad is an all-volunteer organization that operates on the former Southern Pacific and Port of Tillamook Bay Railroads, running regularly scheduled trains between Garibaldi and Rockaway Beach in the summer months and special event trains throughout the year over the rest of the line.

The cost for the trip is $40 per person, not including lunch. The 60+ Adventure Van will be leaving Newport at 7:30 am and returning around 5 pm.

For more information, or to reserve a spot, drop by the center at 20 SE 2nd Street or call 541-265-9617.
