Problem solved:  The Astoria Waterfront Trolley pulls its own source of electricity, a generator, up and down the line!  Pretty clever, these  Astorians!  The trolley runs on unused railroad right of way, and installing overhead lines would have made the project impossible.

It's perfectly clear, I'm just not here.

Like little toy trains...

Five engines in front (and one pushing), a UP unit train rounds the bend.

One more from the Gorge...

East of Hood River, Oregon, as the lush fir, cedar, and hemlock give way to sparse pines and sagebrush.  This is looking west, on the Oregon side of the Columbia River.
