No Trains

The blocks between Union Station and W Burnside St. on both streets that carry Portland Mall traffic are somewhat -- or more than somewhat -- beleaguered.  The coming of light rail may help spur a renaissance. 

No trains are in view in this scene, and there is little vehicular traffic of any kind.  The very distinctive clock tower of Union Station, more than a century old, lies directly ahead.

The bus stop to the right is at NW 6th St. & NW Flanders Ave.  Streets north of Burnside (actually beyond Ankeny, the street south of Burnside) are named beginning with successive letters of the alphabet.  Thus this is four blocks north of Burnside, after Couch, Davis and Everett.
