Albany and Eastern Railroad
The Albany and Eastern Railroad (reporting mark AERC) was created when the 
BNSF Railway spun off its Sweet Home Branch Line in May 1998. In November 2000, the AERC was combined with the Willamette Valley Railway but maintained the AERC name. It operates about 49 miles (79 km) of track and is based in Lebanon, Oregon. The line runs from Albany to Mill City. At the Albany end of the line it connects to Union Pacific and BNSF lines.

​The AERC also operates Santium Excursions Trains. More information is available at their website:
