Go where no car can take you! The Eagle Cap Excursion Train runs on a roadless stretch of track between Elgin and Minam in Northeast Oregon. Along the way, the train passes through a spectacular scenic landscape as it follows the Grande Ronde River down stream, then turns up the Wild & Scenic Wallowa River. The scenic train provides a relaxing journey into untamed territory. A pause at the Kimmel siding, allows passengers to stretch their legs and breathe the fresh mountain air before continuing the train ride. A meal is served on the train during many trips. Other trips have featured entertainment. See the website, www.eaglecaptrainrides.com for the schedule, trip descriptions and additional news.

The Eagle Cap Excursion Train operates out of a new depot in Elgin, where you will find ample parking, a gift shop, indoor and outdoor waiting areas, rest rooms, and historical exhibits and photos. Reservations are recommended. Reserve an entire car for your group, or charter the train for a private event. Historically known as the Joseph Branch, the railroad is owned by the governments of Wallowa & Union Counties, with the train operated by the Friends of the Joseph Branch.
