In 1981, NPOV Lion’s Club started a train ride that carried 60 passengers along the scenic Pend Oreille River from Ione to Metaline Falls. The success of the ride over the years had increased ridership to over 10,000 guests each season. From humble beginnings, North Pend Oreille Valley Lion’s Excursion Train Ride rolled to a stop after 35 years of providing family fun on October 23, 2016.
This created a new challenge for NPOV Lion’s. Funds raised from the train ride supported local, regional, and international projects. Nothing could replace the train but NPOV Lion’s now have a new, exciting, family fun event…RAIL RIDERS! Enjoy the unique experience of a four seated, pedal powered, railroad bicycle along the beautiful, scenic Pend Oreille River.
