Turning from NW 23rd Ave.

This view from during the line's first year of operation shows a car just about turn off NW 23rd Ave. onto NW Lovejoy St.  Although the streets the tracks are laid upon are in some cases two-way, the rails never run together along the same blocks until beyond Portland State, on the far-southern portion of the line.

This area of the city contains much vitality, including a major hospital, some lovely old homes, new residential and commercial development, and numerous restaurants and other enterprises, funky and otherwise -- many in old buildings along the neighborhood's streets.
