Wednesday, August 26, 2015 - 8:45am to 5:15pm

Enjoy an excursion on this tourist and freight shortline railroad that used to be a branch of the UP. The trip goes from Hood River to Parkdale, Oregon in the shadow of 11,238 foot Mt. Hood. The line includes an operating 3 mile switchback. Switchbacks used to be common, but this is now only one of five remaining railroad switchbacks in use in the United States. Travel behind chopped nose GP9s on a 4 hour round-trip ride (22 miles each way). (Meal included)
