Portland Vancouver Junction Railroad Overview

Portland Vancouver Junction Railroad operates between Vancouver Junction, WA and Battle Ground, WA (the rest of the line is operated by the Chelatchie Prairie tourist railroad).

Clark County leases the rail line between Vancouver and Battle Ground to the Portland Vancouver Junction Railroad, and leases the section between Heisson and Chelatchie Prairie to a seasonal excursion train operator, BYCX. Over the years, volunteers have spent thousands of hours maintaining the tracks between Moulton Falls and Chelatchie Prairie to help keep the excursion train running.

PJVR interchanges with BNSF and UP at Vancouver Junction, Washington.
