IC3 Flexliner Demo in Oregon State


Danish Train Visits Oregon in May


The Oregon Department of Transportation in cooperation with Amtrak, Union Pacific Railroad and ADtrans operated demonstration runs of the ADtrans Danish IC3 Flexliner Train in the Willamette Valley between May 6 and May 18th.

The Demonstration was a success, with all trips nearly sold out (both the excursion runs and in regular Amtrak service.

The IC3 train went back to Chicago after the demonstration for servicing, then is operating as Hiawatha service between Chicago and Milwaukee June 6-29. That demonstration is being sponsored by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
