Murder Mystery Dinner Trains for 2016

Murder Mystery Dinner Trains

“Who dun’ it?” Those are the words that will be in your head as you enjoy a ride on the Chehalis-Centralia Murder Mystery Dinner Train. As you sit and enjoy your dinner, you can imagine yourself in the middle of an Agatha Christie murder mystery. The train will depart the station at 5:00 PM and return about 7:00 PM. Dinner will be served on board the train in the refurbished dining car while clues and entertainment are provided along the way. You will have an opportunity to be a detective and solve the crime.

The trip includes a four-course meal with your choice of Chicken Cordon Bleu, Salmon or Prime Rib, as well as train ride tickets.

Welcome to the official homepage of the Sumpter Valley Railroad!

When planning a summer visit to northeast Oregon, be sure to add the Sumpter Valley Railroad to your travel itinerary. History comes to life aboard the vintage trains as you travel through the heart of gold country in the scenic Sumpter Valley. Running between McEwen and the historic mining town of Sumpter, it’s a guarantee that the whole family will enjoy this relaxing trip back in time without having to leave the comfort of the present.

The Sumpter Valley Railroad is open on select weekends and major holidays, Memorial Day Weekend through the last weekend in September. CLICK HERE for our 2016 calendar. Round trips usually take just over two hours, including a layover in either McEwen or Sumpter. CLICK HERE to see the 2016 schedules and fares for both Regular and Holiday Weekends. There are also many special events throughout the season, ranging from train robberies to photo specials. CLICK HERE for event dates, and to read a brief description of each special.

I'm a big train fan; my dad got me started on this when he built a very detailed HO layout in our basement when we were growing up. He also took me and my brother to various railroad museums and GTGs when we were young shavers. I'd love to do one of the dinner trains one day.

Slightly off topic--I have only two things against the murder-mystery dinners, one is the dinner, which is usually second-rate, and the second is the whole murder-mystery thing. It's really difficult for me to enjoy my cold prime rib and lumpy potatoes when I'm fighting the urge to vomit due to the annoying highjinks of a otherwise unemployable actor in a trench coat pretending he's Colonel fucking Mustard.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
