City of Prineville Railway

May 12-13, 2024 – Prineville, OR


The City of Prineville Railway and Pacific Railcar Operators “PRO” invite you to journey on their scenic high dessert railroad from the Prineville Freight Depot to Prineville Junction and return for about 29-miles round trip on well-maintained rail. Two round trips are planned. This date has been adjusted to make it part of the Motorcar Operators West (MOW) “2024 Northwest Rail Tour.” This customer oriented short line railroad was formed in 1918 and is the oldest continuously operated municipal short line in the United States. This will be a no frills run, so we will not be towing a potty car.

The set-on area has changed since past excursions and is limited in size. Long tow vehicles (RVs) will have difficulties in the set-on area and will need to use a shorter vehicle to tow the motorcar from the parking location into the set-on/set-off area. Parking will be supervised. The run fee is $75.

Dry camping is permitted on the railroad’s property on Sunday night, May 12th only. All vehicles must be off railroad property by 11:59 PM May 13th.


The EC is Guy Howard,, and the ECIT is Dave Klein,


This will not be a full mentoring run but operators who have attended a mentoring school can arrange to complete their operating run requirements. Please Contact Guy Howard,, before the run to set this up.
