The Railfan Guide to Metropolitan Portland

 

The Railfan Guide to Metropolitan Portland will transport you from Albina Yard to the Washington Park & Zoo Railway, from East Portland Traction to Westside MAX and from the ex-Northern Pacific main toward Seattle to the ex-Southern Pacific main toward Eugene.

Each area you visit will include a description and historical summary, directions on how to get there, a sample of what kind of traffic to expect, and photographs of the activity.

You are also encouraged to participate in this ongoing project. Please send any materials such as maps, photographs (in .jpg format) site descriptions and directions, to my E-mail address.

There are several locations around the Portland metro area and throughout the Pacific Northwest where webcams allow you to catch rail and transit operations.

Several, such as the cameras at the Olympia-Lacey, Wash. Amtrak station, are dedicated railcams. Others, such as the Oregon DOT and Washington DOT traffic cameras, catch rail or transit operations as part of the overall view.

Thanks for your interest! Just click on the location to begin your visit or on the camera link to watch the action...
