Photo of the Week: Portland Tram

Good for Wellington?

By Geoff Churchman

Portland, Oregon, is a city I like a lot, not least because of the inner and outer city light rail system it has been steadily growing over the years.

Beginning in 1986, it now has a 100 km system length which while only 40% of what Melbourne in Australia has, is impressive for a system which began competing with lots of road traffic.

I thought this tram / Light Rail Vehicle would look good in Wellington — it only needs a little bit of black to be appropriate colours!
