Safety First at TriMet

Unless you're the poor City of Tigard Meter Reader who has to read this water meter at the Tigard Transit Center.  Who, in their right mind, would put a water meter (and I'm not even sure what the meter is for!) on an active rail line.......................

And before I get the smart ass remark from Jason - Tigard does not use AMR meters.  So someone has to walk onto the rail right-of-way once a month, pull the cover and read the meter.

While I dunno why it wasnt fixed when they put the station in, but maybe it was there already? Isnt one of the track sidings new for WES?

No, it was not there before. And if it were, surely it would be movable (and with the increase in train traffic, it would have been a very wise thing to move, if it were there before.)

Well, that was my thought, it was there before, and it didnt get moved, maybe the folks at TriMet shot it down when someone mentioned it to them while it was being built without even looking at it or looking into it for that matter.
