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 thru posh neighborhoods. Soon you will be on a high trestle overlooking the beautiful Willamette River and continue along the Willamette River thru Powers Marine Park, then ending your journey at the Southwest Portland waterfront district at Bancroft and Moody Streets (a short walk to the Portland Streetcar). Then you may return the way you came. 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.

This is the last set of two Zell Brothers crystal Vintage Trolley wine glasses that we will ever offer for sale. Come in and get them this upcoming weekend. We’re giving you one final chance before one of our members buys them.

These wine glasses were given out at the exclusive grand opening of the Vintage Trolleys we use today when they began their service with TriMet's MAX in 1991.

After these glasses, the final two we have will be a part of a raffle at a special event later this year, but these are the last ones that you can purchase. Once these glasses are gone, they are gone forever.

Who will be the lucky person to own this piece of Portland history?

When the trolley arrived on the trestle today on the last trip to Portland, we saw a family of people walking their bicycles across the trestle. Quick reminder: there’s a very good reason - or rather several good reasons - why we have these NO TRESPASSING signs up.
1. A trolley comes by, sometimes with little or no warning.
2. If you slip and fall, it could be a very long way for help to get to you.
3. If you fall off the trestle, it could be a 100’ drop, and this trestle does not go over water.

Please. Do not mess around on train tracks. The people we met today we were lucky that it was a trolley in the tracks and not a freight train. We were able to stop in plenty of time for these folks to get off the trestle. A freight train would have been all the way across before coming to rest.

As our friends at Operation Lifesaver Inc. like to say,

Any time is train time.
