West Across NW 205th Ave.

This view west across NW 205th Ave. shows concrete ties and the well-maintained right of way of Westside MAX.  As with  the Eastside line, a significant portion of the line follows a former interurban line.  The extensive stretch between Beaverton and Hillsboro runs along the route of the long-gone Oregon Electric. 

There is perhaps something to this view that hints at its old electric rail heritage; or maybe that feeling is mostly something the mind conjures up, knowing what once was.

On the other hand, the Westside extension, unlike the original line to Gresham, utilizes concrete ties along its long stretch of private right of way.  And so goes progress.
