“Dine in the American Freedom Train”
In 1987, our family owned and operated business began riding on the rails from a start by elder Thurston, who built his business from a popcorn stand on a street corner right here in Elbe, WA. We’ve expanded to include a caboose motel (The Hobo Inn), a gift shop, the Cascadian Dinner Train and a restaurant and lounge where you can wet your whistle, leaving you saying, “Sorry honey, I got side-tracked.” So for you railroad buffs, the Cascadian Dinner Train, best known as the American Freedom Train, once toured the country with 26 cars displaying over 500 treasures of Americana. Whether you’re here for the scenery, the history or just plain here for the food, you re now one of many, including President Ford, that get to experience the exciting ambience of our delightful trains. We are happy to share this treasure with you and we hope you enjoy our mouth-watering house-smoked tastes including our Alder Smoked Prime Rib, Smoked Poultry and our Pork and Fish; truly a delicious family secret. Our family goal is to provide long lasting memories of yesteryear on the rails as well as a wonderful and unique dining experience.
