The Willamette Shore Trolley has been providing scenic trolley rides on a 6-mile section of
historic rail line between Lake Oswego and Portland, Oregon since 1987 and is operated by volunteer members of the Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society (a not-for-profit Oregon Corporation. 501c3).
Ride our authentic antique trolley car along the shore of the Willamette River. During your journey you'll ride through parks, by stately mansions, over several bridges, including the 686 foot Riverwood Trestle, and through the 1400' Elk Rock Tunnel.
The line was opened for service from Oswego (now Lake Oswego) to Portland on July 4th, 1887 as a narrow gauge steam railroad known as the Portland and Willamette Valley Railroad.
It was later purchased by the Southern Pacific and standard-gauged around the turn of the century.
