OHSU tram tour

The OSHU tram turned 5 yesterday, so today they had a birthday party for it in the Center for Health & Healing which is OHSU's South Waterfront location & the bottom terminus for the tram. Inside was tram artwork & photography, a couple of tram operators with some of the tools & tram parts & segments of the cables to see up close, and also cupcakes.  Every half hour or so they ran tours of the engine room and control room.

Very interesting!
If you hold the i phone sideways instead of straight up the movie will actually come out properly.

Still learning! It wasn't until most of the way through the tour that I discovered how the zoom lens worked.

Darn it. I think I heard about this. (But I did make it to another event)

Thanks for posting these. I was out camping with my son, otherwise we would have gone.

I think they'll be doing this again in June, so there will be more opportunities to go
