About Us and Our Train Rides
Schedule and Boarding Location (South End)
The Oregon Pacific Railroad is a family owned and operated freight railroad company that
operates a passenger train every Saturday from March through November on our
East Portland
Division railroad line located in Portland, Oregon.  Trains are pulled by a historic GMD-1 diesel
locomotive and include an open air car, passenger cabooses and a very historic business
passenger car.

Round trip rides last approximately 45 minutes and travel along the east bank of the Willamette
River, next to the Springwater Trail, through the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge.

Our train stops to board and deboard passengers at two stations:
The
Oregon Rail Heritage Center and Oaks Amusement Park

All ages are welcome and children under 2 ride for free.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OPERATIONAL AND SCHEDULE CHANGES TO ACCOMMODATE COVID19
RESTRICTIONS   -   PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

These restrictions were in place last season and will remain in effect until further notice.
Ticketing:   All tickets will now be sold online. Please click on the "Book Online" link near the top of this page.

Pricing:  Pricing will be the same as before for now and as indicated on our website with the potential for some changes in the future. 'This generally means $10 for teenagers
and
adults and $5 for children age 2-12, round trip. However, due to the requirement to sell our tickets on line to limit capacity, our online ticket vender does charge a very
nominal online fee in addition to our ticket price.

Limited Space Available:  Due to COVID restrictions and concerns, we are limiting spacing to approximately 82 passengers per train departure. This number includes all
riders, adults and children. This is approximately half the capacity of our train. Families and friends will be grouped together whenever possible. To control spacing and limit
ridership, only 82 tickets will be available for sale for each train departure. So it will be best to purchase tickets early as soon as our sales go live.
  This number will be
increased throughout the season as restrictions are lifted and higher capacities are allowed.


No Locomotive Cab Rides:   Locomotive cab rides will not be available until further notice due to COVID and spacing restrictions. This may change later in the season.

Last Minute Arrivals and Ticket Purchasing:  If trains are sold out due to online sales, we will be unable to board any additional passengers who wish to purchase
tickets on site as last minute arrivals. However, if space is available, we will try to accommodate last minute riders on a case by case basis by selling tickets on site as we have
in previous years. We HIGHLY encourage anyone wishing to book a train ride to use our online ticketing to ensure a reserved spot.

Changed Schedule:   We will continue to operate only on Saturdays. To simplify our operation and to be able to control spacing and passenger capacity, all trains will depart
and return to the Oregon Rail Heritage Station only. Trains will not stop at Oaks Amusement Park until further notice. Be aware that Oaks Park is still closed a
nd we are not sure
when they will reopen.   
 But when/if they reopen, we will add a stop to Oaks Park Station as part of our regular schedule.

If the State Further Restricts:    In the event that the State imposes further restrictions on operations like ours or our operation becomes untenable (not enough ticket
sales) we may be required to temporarily shut down until further notice. In such an event, any unused tickets will be refunded.


Departure Times:   Our trains will depart the Oregon Rail Heritage Center at 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.  Please note this is a significant change from 2019 and prior seasons
and was first changed last year.   We will maintain this schedule until further notice.   There will not be a 5pm train unless we experience high demand later in the season.


All Current COVID19 Restrictions Apply:   Please be sure to follow all state and local restrictions to include wearing masks, social distancing when possible and not
riding if you are ill.
 

Additional Information:   The train rides will be otherwise much the same as last year, pulled by one of our diesel locomotives and along the same route between the ORHF
Museum and approximately the Sellwood Bridge and back. Most of our cars are open cars with some interior seating. Seating and boarding will be first come, first served of
pre-paid ticket passengers. If seats remain at the departure time, additional seats will be sold on site to last minute passengers on a first come, first served basis.

Parking and Boarding:  Parking will continue to be the same as last year, under the Grand Ave. bridge near the Museum. Passengers can enter the museum (be sure to
wear a mask) and walk back to the boarding area. Passengers will show proof of purchase of tickets to the OPR Conductor or Crew and will be ushered to a seating area,
depending on the group size and time of arrival. Proof of purchase can be displayed in paper form or on a cell phone or in most cases, the OPR crew can verify ticket purchases
by name and ID if needed. Train rides will be approximately 35-40 minutes round trip. There are no restrooms on the train, but restrooms are located at the museum. Also, due to
the historical nature of our equipment, we are unable to accommodate any wheelchairs on the train at this time.
