WES Rail Car Facts
WES uses self-propelled diesel locomotives
WES Commuter Rail trains were shipped to Portland by freight train from the Colorado Railcar Manufacturing facility in Fort Lupton, Colorado.
The first rail cars for the new WES Commuter Rail line arrived in June 2008 at our maintenance facility in Wilsonville.
WES uses self-propelled diesel locomotives, running on an existing freight train track.
Portland & Western Railroad operates the trains, with an engineer and a conductor on board.
