Written October 19th, 2018 by Hasso Hering

To save the trains, buy a ticket

Written July 3rd, 2015 by Hasso Hering

The Cascades passenger trains that stop in Albany four times a day have been rescued for now with a funding package that cleared the legislature on Thursday. But only an increase in the number of paying passengers can save them for good.

Written May 9th, 2015 by Hasso Hering

Written January 4th, 2014 by Hasso Hering

Things are happening on the passenger rail front in the Willamette Valley, one right away and the other in the indefinite future. Oregon’s two new Talgo train sets start revenue service on Monday (Jan. 6), when the number of southbound trains stopping in Albany on weekdays increases from three a day to four.
