Oregon Rail Heritage Center (ORHC) Tours and Activities

Oregon Rail Heritage Center (ORHC)
Portland's Oregon Rail Heritage Center (ORHC) pays homage to the days when trains were the primary way in and out of the region.

The Oregon Rail Heritage Center was opened in 2012 on the east side of the Willamette River after the demolition of an historic roundhouse necessitated moving three steam locomotives owned by the city of Portland. The three locomotives are now at the ORHC, which is near the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.

Two of the three steam locomotives are operational, and are sometimes used on special train trips in the area. The three were built in 1905, 1938 and 1941. In addition to the steam trains, other pieces in the ORHC collection include vintage rail cars and special seasonal exhibits on Portland's historic rail network.

Practical Info

The Oregon Rail Heritage Center is open Thursday-Sunday from 1pm-5pm, and although admission is free donations are always appreciated. Guided tours of the engines are available, and short rail trips from the museum to the nearby Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge are available on Saturdays. You can get to the museum by using the Eastside Streetcar at the OMSI stop.
