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.
