Amtrak Engine Beyond

Rails are ready for service in this view near Union Station from a few weeks before Portland Mall service began.  There is a loop in this area for trains and streetcars not continuing across Steel Bridge.  Such traffic will be coming along the rails switching in from the left.  From the right, Yellow and Green Line trains will arrive, after descending from Steel Bridge.

An Amtrak engine is seen in the background, biding its time.  Passenger trains from that location go as far north as Vancouver, British Columbia, and as far east as Chicago, and south to Los Angeles.
