Today we’re leaving Portland. To begin we have the Type 3 Orange Line train that we took from our hotel station to Pioneer Square.
Then we caught a Type 4 Blue Line towards Gateway/NE 99th Ave. TC. The Type 4s are paired with each other, and they have no cabs in the center of the two-car train. As you can see, the cabs have been replaced with a large window and more seats.
The signature light at the top of most light rails has also been blacked out.
At Gateway TC we saw a Type 2 on a Not-in-Service run.
From there we caught a Type 5 to the airport. This last ride would mean that I had ridden every single type of Trimet LRV!!! Yay me…
Since this is the end of our trip, I figured it would be a good time to show you several of the videos of trains we saw during our trip. Here’s the Coast Starlight at various places.
Here are all of the MAX trains I saw.
Here are all of the Portland Streetcars.
And here are some buses from PDX airport.
Here’s are plane, an A320 named YouTube Air.
Here’s a United 737-800.
We had a wonderful engine view, as we were sitting in seat 6ABC.
Here’s a Delta 717, as seen from our rainy airplane window.
There’s an interesting shuttle bus. What’s interesting is that the rear wheel is covered up and there’s a rear door.
Ugh. This is what I saw for the entirety of the flight whenever I wanted to view CC.
There’s one of the big mountains, as viewed from 30,000 feet up.
There’s the Bay Bridge, which we saw on our descent path. I think the airfield down there might be Oakland or Alameda airports.
Here’s our landing video.
Next post will be about my December trip to Davis.
