The two tram cars that will be used to shuttle people back and forth from Oregon Health and Science University to the South Waterfront arrived on a large ship at the Port of Portland’s Terminal Six Sunday afternoon.
The journey for the cars started in Switzerland where they were fabricated.
The cars were originally scheduled to arrive in Portland the week of October 16th. Tram Project Manager, Rob Barnard, told KGW “The ship that they were on didn’t have a lot of freight for the Portland area. It was running late and they diverted to Canada where the majority of their shipment was.”
The cars were built by Bern, Switzerland based Gangloff Cabins.
