Description
The Oregon Rail Heritage Center is hosting it's 3rd annual Portland Train Day (PTD). Portland Train Day 2018 joins Train Days across the country in commemorating the completion of the first transcontinental railroad with the pounding of the ‘Golden Spike’ at Promontory Summit, Utah on May 10, 1869. This year's PTD theme will highlight the 80th birthday of our own SP&S 700 steam locomotive!

Come celebrate Portland’s rich history with trains at Portland's only working train museum. All proceeds support our Foundation and the continued maintenance and operation of our beloved trains. Event activities include train rides, live music, food carts, beer garden, pedal rail cars, train exhibits, activities for the kids and more!

~ TRAIN RIDES: Take a ride on the Oregon Pacific Railroad. Cost for train tickets are $10 for ages 13+, $5 for ages 3-12. Kids under age 3 ride for FREE. Trains leave every hour on the half hour. Pre-purchase your tickets today! Event admission and train tickets are required to ride the train.

~ LIVE MUSIC: Your kids can rock out to some sweet tunes by Rock-N-Roll Fairy (10:15 to 11:15am) and The Alphabeticians (1-2:15pm). All ages can move to the tunes of the Rose City Trombones (11:15 and 1pm), Logger's Daughter (2:30-3:45), and Bridge City Soul (4:15-5:30pm).

~ EXHIBITS: In addition to our resident locomotives, come see our other amazing train exhibits on display, including the Great Northern Lego Railway, Columbia Gorge Model RR Club, Longview, Kelso & Rainer Model Railroad Club, and Cascade Z Modelers.
