THINGS TO DO: Eagle cap train

Passenger train service in Wallowa County, a standard way to travel in the early 1900s, was resurrected in 2003 when Wallowa and Union counties bought the ruggedly scenic Joseph branch rail line from Joseph to Elgin in neighboring Union County.

Leisurely train trips from Elgin in neighboring Union County to a point known as Kimmel, with much of the route accessible only by the rail route, now are offered on the Eagle Cap Excursion Train (, one of the county's biggest attractions.
