Ride the Rails

Oregon is now the proud owner of the Mt. Bachelor and the Mt. Jefferson, two passenger trains that will join the Amtrak Cascades corridor, running from Eugene to Vancouver, B.C., beginning January 6. The new additions will increase passenger rail service in the Willamette Valley.

With bike storage and 238 seats in standard or business class, eco-friendly train travel is a growing transporation method on the West Coast. Dine, surf the web and enjoy the scenery en route to your business meeting or vacation destination.
