Willamette Shore Trolley

Take a scenic trolley along the Willamette River

Willamette Shore Trolley at Elk Rock TunnelRide in a Vintage Trolley from Lake Oswego into a dark tunnel and meander through posh neighborhoods.  Soon you will be on a high trestle overlooking the beautiful Willamette River.  Continuing along the river you will pass through Powers Marine Park before ending your journey at the Southwest Portland waterfront district at Bancroft and Moody Streets. It is just a short walk to the Portland Streetcar and Tram.

You will be 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 formerly ran on the MAX Line and Portland Streetcar before coming to the Willamette Shore Trolley.

Sadly the Great Oregon Steamup has been canceled this year along with all other events at Powerland Heritage Park. Please help support Powerland and the on-site museums, including our trolley museum. It's not too late to donate and make a difference at Powerland Heritage Park. Visit www.antiquepowerland.com/supportdonate to support us today.On behalf of the Antique Powerland Museum Association board, thank you for your participation in events held here at Powerland Heritage Park. Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 crisis and Oregon’s current restrictions on large gatherings and events, we’ve had to make decisions we’ve never had to make before. After thoughtful deliberation the APMA Board of Directors are following the guidelines from the State and the CDC and have cancelled all events at Powerland Heritage Park through September 30, 2020. You are our friends and family and it’s important to us to keep you and all of the museums here on the grounds safe.

Just like you, we were excitedly waiting to celebrate our 50th Great Oregon Steam-Up this year. This is the one event that keeps the doors open and carries us over from year to year. We are working to develop a new way to enjoy the marvelous wonders that we have here on the grounds. Watch our website for new developments to keep us connected until we can gather in person as in the past.

We are grateful for all of your support and look forward to the time when we can gather once again to renew friendships, make new friends, and share the wonders and innovations of mechanical history in motion at Powerland Heritage Park.

Be well, stay safe, and stay healthy!
