Old Trolley Tracks Under Grand Avenue Viaduct.

Remnants of the Bridge Transfer Line trolley tracks under the Grand Avenue Viaduct in SE Portland. The viaduct was completed c.1930, and the BT Line largely discontinued on and off again until 10 years later. The Viaduct is currently scheduled for heavy remodelling/reconstruction, and I suspect these tracks will either be paved over or torn up.

Unless someone proves me wrong, this two block strech of track is the largest section of original trolley track left in the city.
