The magic of the Holiday Express train

Start off the holiday season with an adventure on board a holiday train!

The Holiday Express is a wonderful vintage steam engine.  It takes passengers on a holiday excursion, along the beautiful Oregon Pacific Railroad.

The family-friendly ride starts at Oaks Park Station, and is about 45 minutes long.  During the ride, Santa and his helpful elves make an appearance and visit passengers!

The Holiday Express is put on by the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation.  The foundation preserves Portland’s historic locomotives and railroad artifacts.  It provides education to the public about Oregon’s railroad history. 

The Holiday Express train rides begin the day after Thanksgiving! Visit the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation’s website for more information.
