This photo is at Cleveland Ave., last stop in Gresham.
Unlike the previous images from Gresham in this section, this one was
taken not too much after the line opened
in 1986; this is perhaps hinted upon by the fragile appearance of the young trees
that had been planted within the station platform.
Much of the right of way along the farther part of the route was
single-track then. Everything has been double-tracked since.
Over the years destination signs for
trains bound for downtown
from here have shown at least the following three variations: Portland,
City Center, and Portland City Center. It has all been moot for some
time now, as trains go much further out, to Hillsboro.
These original MAX cars, those
numbered in the 100 series, are the only series manufactured by Bombardier.
