Mt. Hood Railroad will stop at Dee this summer

Mt. Hood Railroad’s summer excursions will stop at Dee instead of Parkdale this year, while the railroad temporarily stores empty cars on the tracks.

Railroad General Manager Ron Kaufman said in a news release it was a business decision to store vacant railcars on the tracks near Parkdale instead of running the excursion route there as usual.

“Due to extremely low gas prices there is an influx of rail cars in need of temporary storage nationwide,” Kaufman said.

For the 2016 summer season, MHRR’s expected launch is June 1. The railroad will continue to offer similar schedules and events as in recent years, including dinner, brunch and excursion train trips.

In 2017, MHRR intends to get the Parkdale route back up and running.
