Wine Train?

According to Thursday’s Oregonian, a group of business and elected leaders in Yamhill County would like to run a train from Portland through the wine country, perhaps terminating at the Spirit Mountain casino.

Just a few obstacles: buying set of self-propelled rail cars that ODOT is putting up for bid and $20M to make repairs to the existing but unused freight tracks they’d like to use.

I understand Napa Valley has something like this. Would it work in Oregon? No need to worry about driving home after all those tastings!
