Willamette Shore Trolley

Take a scenic trolley along the Willamette River

Ride in a Vintage Trolley from Lake Oswego into a dark tunnel and meander thru posh neighborhoods. Soon you will be on a high trestle overlooking the beautiful Willamette River and continue along the Willamette River into Powers Marine Park. From there you will return to Lake Oswego. A perfect outing for families and couples. 

You will riding on a historic rail line dating from the late 1800s. The tunnel dates from 1912. At one time electrified interurbans ran on this line from Portland to Oswego and on to Hillsboro, McMinnville and Corvallis. The Vintage Trolley itself is a replica trolley in the style of Portland’s own Council Crest cars. Two of the original cars can be found at our museum in Brooks. The Vintage Trolleys did run on the MAX Line  and Portland Streetcar before coming to Willamette Shore Trolley.

Us here at Willamette Shore Trolley were very surprised by this year's excitement for the Christmas Ships Trolley Trips. We sold out all seats, on all runs, in just over 1 day since they went on sale. Normally it takes us 2~4 weeks to sell out. Next year we are planning to have two trolleys running which will double our capacity for this popular excursions. We will also look at possible internet ticketing next year. Thank you for your patience this year! Happy Thanksgiving!! ... See MoreSee Less
