Photo: An Uncommon Rail Palette

Every Portland Streetcar has its own color scheme, but some are more natural than others. One of the first ones I encountered on the road was #008, which at the time had a rather unique yellow and green color scheme with blue trimming. Not the sort of colors that usually go together on transit vehicles, I have to admit. What really struck me about this image when I was going through my archives was the bus ahead of the streetcar; TriMet uses some of the same models as the TTC, and so if I really squint, it's like this scene is taking place in Toronto.

But Mayor Ford would never stand for a streetcar blocking up traffic like that. I mean, just look at it! All blocking and such.
