Oregon Zoo Lays Tracks For New Train Route
Tuesday, September 02, 2014
As the zoo has transformed, views from the train have been compromised, according to Heidi Rahn, who oversees all the new projects at the zoo.
“Over the years, as new zoo exhibits were developed, views from the train were given limited consideration. Now we are creating a new train experience with a greater focus on animals,” Rahn said .
The new railway line evolved out of plans for a children's train when the zoo moved to its current site in the late 1950s.
The Zoo train has been out of commission for nearly a year due to construction.
