The pair of trolleys at Portland Trolley is a study in anachronistic contrast. For every modern amenity—GPS systems, up-to-date safety features, and, most crucial during wintertime rides, heat—is a feature that harkens back to 1872, which was the year trolleys made their Portland debut, still 10 years prior to the invention of snow. Shiny brass rails, old-fashioned window trim, and classic fare boxes surround the 28 passengers that fill the oak-slat seats, while the dings of authentic trolley bells provide a nostalgia-filled soundtrack.
These time machines are perhaps the most unique addition to the fleet at Portland Trolley's parent company, Twilite Limousine and Tour Company—which began in 2009 with a single stretch limo. The trolleys are accompanied by seven other luxury vehicles, including Mercedes Benz E350 sedans, Lincoln Town Car stretch limousines, and 12-passenger tour vans. Clients charter each for private excursions, such as anniversaries, birthdays, and bachelorette parties, as well as guided tours to wine country and through the city’s holiday-light displays.
