The Scoop:

Portland is one the the better towns in America for railfanning if you're into both trains and transit.  With the commencement of traffic over the Broadway Bridge, it has gotten even better.

In the downtown area, you will discover a delightful mix of both the TriMet LRV's and the Portland Streetcars.  Activity is such that is will keep you busy all day long with the variety of places for photo opportunities.

Just out of sight in the above picture is the eastern tunnel portal, kinda under the Vista Ave overpass....



If you park further "down" the hill, and walk, you can get shots of the trains coming in and out of the tunnel from along Jefferson St
