Oregon/Railroads

Like highways, railroad tracks have been imported from TIGER data and they share the same problems like unconnected segments, wrong tagging, missing bridges and railroad crossings and positions that are frequently off quite a lot. So a review is necessary as it is for highways. This page is currently a work in progress, becoming alpha as its basic structure emerges as stable.

Active Lines (Mainline, Branch, Industrial and Short)

Lines, expressed as route=railway relations, that see active, regular rail traffic, whether freight, industrial or passenger.

BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe)

BNSF operates the Northwest Division in Oregon, with headquarters in Seattle, Washington. This division has additional segments in Washington, Idaho, Northern California and British Columbia, Canada.

Passenger trains (Heavy Rail, Light Rail, Trams/Trolleys, Monorail, Tourism/Historic/Heritage Rail)

Tracks, stations and platforms used for passenger trains are properly collected into route=train relations, or relations tagged route=light_rail, route=subway or route=tram when those are the underlying rail infrastructure.

These tables are "somewhat complete." If you find a train, route (relation link, Review Status...) that needs to be added, updated or improved, please do so!

Amtrak operates intercity passenger trains in the contiguous United States: some service=commuter trains, many intrastate and passenger=regional trains and all interstate, passenger=national (long_distance), highspeed=yes, service=night, and passenger=international trains (some cross into Canada); see OSM Amtrak wiki table. Try OpenPublicTransportMap.

A subset is repeated here with just these three routes which serve Oregon: two routes are Amtrak proper, one is a joint operation between Amtrak and the Washington Department of Transportation & Oregon Department of Transportation known as Amtrak Cascades:

Amtrak passenger=national and passenger=international trains serving Washington State (AMTK)

Route Trains Passenger Service Relation Status
Amtrak Cascades northbound (even): 500, 502, 504, 506, 508, 510, 516 southbound (odd): 501, 503, 505, 507, 509, 513, 517 international Relation 71428 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history, analyze, manage, gpx) Complete; rough public_transport v1. Seattle Subdivision needs fixing. 467 miles (Salem, Oregon - Portland, Oregon - Seattle - Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada).
Coast Starlight 11-14 national Relation 2812900 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history, analyze, manage, gpx) Complete; rough public_transport v1. Seattle Subdivision needs fixing. 1377 miles (Seattle - Los Angeles, California).
Empire Builder 27-28 national Relation 1809794 (XML, iD, JOSM, Potlatch2, history, analyze, manage, gpx) Complete; rough public_transport v1. The relation is said to be so big it is hard to work with (>2500 members). 2257 miles (Chicago - Spokane - Seattle - Portland, Oregon)

Colors are passenger=national Amtrak routes = royal blue, passenger=international Amtrak Cascades route = a certain shade of green to reflect livery and branding.
