Welcome! Buy your tickets and plan your trip

The Albany & Eastern Railroad Company (AERC) has a long history in the Mid-Willamette Valley. The AERC operates the Mill City Branch line, which runs from Mill City to Page, OR and then, via trackage rights over the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR), to Albany, OR. The Mill City line was built in part by the California and Oregon Pacific railroads in the early 1880’s.
