Ride Information

View of the Waianae Mountain range as seen from the train depot. Train rides are 2 hours long, round-trip, and fully narrated. We depart from our station in Ewa traveling at a lickety-split speed of 15 miles per hour.

Passengers hear the story of the OR&L as well as stories about how sugar cane trains were used on the sugar plantations. We point out sites of historic interest, such as the site of a sisal plantation, and the "ghost town" of Gilbert. We also talk about the present and future growth of the Leeward Area.

At the end of the line we stop the train for a few minutes so passengers can admire the beautiful view of the ocean at Kahe Point.
On all rides, except the Sunday 1 pm ride, we stop for ice cream in Koolina. Ice cream is not included in the ticket price.

Visitors are invited to use our picnic area, to walk around the train yard to look at the old locomotives and train cars on display, and to browse our gift shop.
