There are no differences in the experience or level of service. The pricing tiers simply reflect the demand for tickets at that date and time.
Tickets are subject to: a) a per-ticket service charge and b) if purchased by phone or on the web, a transaction charge.
All Holiday Express trains leave from the Oaks Station at Oaks Amusement Park. Traffic on the Sellwood bridge and in the Sellwood business district can be difficult, particularly on weekend afternoons. Please allow extra time.
Our waiting area and trains are heated and quite comfortable.
All trips this year will be pulled by the SP 4449.
Please note that our schedule this year is slightly different from previous years. We’re running more trains when folks want them and skipping a few time slots that have historically had light loads.
The Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation is dedicated to making our rail excursions accessible to everyone. Unfortunately, the structural features of these historic rail cars limit access for visitors who use wheelchairs or other wheeled devices, at this time. Click here for more information.

Net proceeds will be used to operate the Rail Heritage Center in the OMSI District, home of Portland’s historic steam locomotives.
