The Mount Hood Railroad is a historic railway in the state of Oregon. The line was named after Mount Hood, mostly because the tracks can easily gain a view of the beautiful mountain.

Built in 1906, the Mount Hood Railroad was owned by the Union Pacific from 1968 to 1987. The company wanted to abandon the line, but luckily, a group of local investors intervened and purchased the railroad. In 2008, it was sold again to the subsidiary of the Iowa Pacific Holdings known as the Permian Basin Railways.

Currently, the Mount Hood Railroad is still very active when it comes to traffic. Small freight shippers still use the line, as well as a couple of scenic tours and excursions.
