Ding....Ding..My New Toy

Vintage Trolley #514

After three years of hiatus (broken down trolley), I finally can get my hands dirty again with the lease of a vintage trolley from the City of Portland and Trimet. Today is the first orientation day of the trolley; the line is much shorter when we run again due to the construction of the Sellwood Bridge. We may not reach South Waterfront for a few years, and that’s just my estimate. The tunnel also needs some repair and we estimate that we can have revenue run after July fourth. On my initial assessment, this vintage trolley is smoother to operate and it feels heavier than what I used to operate. Overall it is a great day for me. I can’t wait.
