Just over from where the Portland Streetcar makes its turn to head west towards NW 23rd and Marshall, you'll find Union Station. Trains come and trains go. There's movement afoot to have this be a no-horn zone. Not yet in place the engineers are taking great delight in blowing those things. Here's Amtrak in the NW 9th Ave crossing. Just imagine the sound of the horn and go on over to the photostream to see a freight locomotive that went through minutes later... more horns!
