POL Government Elected Officials Commissioner Nick Fish
Join Nick tonight for "Romance of the Rail Heritage" - June 8, 2010

 

Nick is excited to join the Oregon Rail Heritage Foundation (ORHF) tonight to share some breaking news about "Romance of the Rail Heritage," a new project in the OMSI district.

 

Since 2000, a dedicated group of community partners have worked to ensure the preservation of three historic locomotives owned by the City of Portland and to find a permanent place to display them for the public.

 

Today, two of the three trains have been fully restored, and ORHF finally owns the property that will become their permanent home. Join the celebration tonight at the Hampton Opera Center in the OMSI District to learn more about the Oregon Rail Heritage Center project! The informal reception is open to the public and begins at 5:30.
