Willamette Shore Trolley in Lake Oswego

Free Vintage Trolley Rides
Grand Opening POSTPONED

The Grand Opening event and free rides have been postponed. Look for an update in the City's HelloLO newsletter and online.

 

Enjoy free rides on Lake Oswego’s new vintage trolley, music and refreshments on July 4, 5 and 6.  The Trolley Grand Opening Event will take place at the Trolley Depot, 311 N. State Street, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.  No tickets required.

Step back in time on Vintage Trolley 514 and hear about the Willamette Shore Line’s historic past as you enjoy this scenic 20-minute ride which takes passengers along the shore of the Willamette River through the 1400-foot Elk Rock Tunnel and to the 686-foot Long Trestle. Trolley 514, a replica of an original trolley used in Portland in 1904, was built in 1991 with modern safety features, wicker seats, solid brass fixtures and ornate solid oak woodwork.

The Willamette Shore Trolley resumes regular service on July 11 along this shortened southern portion of the historic rail line.  The full 5.5-mile line between Lake Oswego and Portland is expected to reopen once the Sellwood Bridge project is done and additional repairs to the Willamette Shore Line are complete.

The Trolley is operated by volunteer members of the non-profit Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society.
