Exciting news!: The OERHS is launching Let’s Talk Trolleys!
Let’s Talk Trolleys are a series on virtual presentations about the history of streetcars and Interurbans in Oregon, and about our museum’s trolley collection. This is to help keep us connected while our trolley operations are suspended. The presentations are free to attend (pre-registration is required), donations are appreciated to help the OERHS maintain our historic trolleys.
The OERHS will follow any Government advisories based on the COVID19 before starting the 2020 season. This includes training our operators and any charters. Our operations were scheduled to start at the end of May. But likely will be impacted.
We will announce here and on our Facebook page when we will start training and open the museum and the Willamette Shore Trolley
Take a trolley ride past posh homes, through a pitch-black tunnel, over trestles with gorgeous views of the Willamette River, and through Powers Marine Park.
Trolleys depart from Lake Oswego and SW Portland. Trolleys are also available for charter for special events such as birthday parties and more
