LA GRANDE — All Aboard Northwest rolled into La Grande on Saturday, Aug. 13, to host a Train Trek meeting at Cook Memorial Library, La Grande. The organization the day before pulled into Pendleton.

The stops are part of a larger series of talks happening across Oregon, Idaho and Utah to gather support for the return of passenger trains to the Pacific Northwest.

This map depicts All Aboard Northwest’s vision for what passenger rail lines could look like for Eastern Oregon and the surrounding area.
