|Marylhurst Charter Train Ride
|On November 12, 2008, the Marylhurst Early Childhood Development Center, chartered a train ride on the Oregon Pacific
Railroad. Several dozen pre-school children rode the train from Oaks Park Station to the East Portland Yards and back. At
East Portland kids had lunch and learned a little bit about railroad crossing safety as part of the Operation Lifesaver program.
Consist for the trip was the famous PTC No. 100, the open air car, and the OPR No. 900 caboose. The weather was less
than cooperative, but the event went off very well and everyone appeared to have a great time!
