Self-Guided Layout Tours

Self-guided Layout Tours will be available again this year at Portland.

Booklets with directions will be sold at the Registration Desk for separate days, at $15 per day, and each booklet will be good for up to four people in one car.

Daily self-guided tours will be of the same layouts offered on that day with the bus tours but will not include all layouts. If the bus tour is in the morning, then the self-guided tour will be in the afternoon and vice versa.

Please respect the layout opening times as printed in the booklets and do not try to visit at other times.
