1991       -       CELEBRATING 23 YEARS of COMMON CARRIER SERVICE         -       2014
The Oregon Pacific Railroad is a family owned and operated
railroad located in the Greater Portland Metro Area.  This short
line consists of two divisions; the
East Portland Division and
the
Molalla Branch Division.   

Although primarily a freight railroad, the Oregon Pacific is
famous for its friendly attitude toward rail fans and the public
and has hosted a number of community oriented events,
including public train rides.

The Oregon Pacific Railroad is owned by Richard Samuels
and is primarily operated by him and his sons, Tim, Brian and
Craig Samuels with help from friends, volunteers and others.   
OPR crews are trained and experienced in every aspect of
railroading, including rail & equipment construction,
maintenance, fabrication, restoration and train operations.

Richard Samuels has owned and operated this company since
it was formed in 1987, when he first organized it to purchase  
the Portland Traction Company Railroad in East Portland.   
Common carrier operations began in 1991, when the remains
of the PTC were officially taken over.   Richard Samuels later
purchased the Southern Pacific Molalla Branch in 1993 and
the two divisions now comprise the Oregon Pacific Railroad.

2014 marks 23 years for the OPR as a common carrier
railroad and more than 27 years of company
operations.  
Richard Samuels was able to revive these two
railroads with a sincere dedication to customer service that
continues to this day.   The OPR and its employees thank
everyone including our valued customers, railfans and
volunteers for their wonderful support of our unique and rare
family owned and operated shortline railroad company.
