Two names were favored in an online public survey to name two new Oregon Department of Transportation trains that will haul Amtrak passengers between Eugene and Vancouver, British Columbia.

Following the tradition of naming Northwest trains after mountain peaks, they will be called Mt. Bachelor and Mt. Jefferson.

Five trains already operating along the Cascades corridor are called Mt. Hood, Mt. Olympus, Mt. Adams, Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier.

Each of the new trains has 13 cars with seating for 275 passengers. They will enter into service this summer.
