A 4-Part History of the Aerial Tram


Portland is nearing completion on its aerial tram project. Next Friday, Sam Adams will test the rescue system by going out the side on a rope, to reassure the citizens of Portland that they are safe should the tram become stuck 140 feet above our city.
How did we get here? The following 4 posts are a look back at the tram's history, brought to you by the Portland Freelancer. Enjoy.

Next Friday? As in the 8th? Figures they'd pick one of the days I'll be out of town.

That's from Phil Standford's column.

Whoops, make that Phil Stanford.

b!X, I'm glad you commented here, and in case you're wondering why I don't comment on your new site as I used to on your original: My eyes do weird things with the white on black print, and yes, I am embarrassed to admit it.

That's fairly typical when it comes to the new site. I wouldn't worry about it, heh.

Can you get wi-fi reception on the Tram?

Do you suppose someone will blog it live on the opening day.

How long does a single fare last if you don't disembark.
