MAX Crossing

The rear of a northbound train occupies much of the landscape in this image.  The distinctive logo for TriMet appears on the side of the train.  Because of the one-way street patterns, there are four different intersections where the two MAX routes cross in downtown, single track to single track.  There are no connections at any of these locations. 

The eastbound train in the background bears the destination sign for Gresham on the Blue Line.  Because of vandalism elsewhere in center city on that line that morning, it ended here, and through passengers needed to transfer either to the shuttle bus to its right, or to Portland Mall trains such as pictured here, to get across Steel Bridge.
