In General

Portland has turned out to be one the the nicer towns in America to visit for taking pictures of both trains and transit.

In the downtown area, you will discover a delightful mix of both the Tri-Met 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.

Additional pictures of the places to catch photos from are here on the railfan pages.

Pictures are always needed if anyone feels inclined to take 'em, send 'em, and share 'em, or if you have something to add or correct.... credit is always given!  Contact info is here
