    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Howdy:

According to Google earth (and myself as I drive around town) there is a railroad line (NOT the Max line) that runs from Beaverton thru Hillsboro out to Stimson Mill. Is this still an active train line? If so, which AAR freq. are used? I'd like to monitor.

Thank you!

That's the Portland & Western RR (PNWR or just P&W).
Code:
Tillamook District: 160.425 (Repeater) - their CH. 4 (AAR 21) | Beaverton - rather, CP Farmington - to Hillsboro
Seghers District:   160.215 (Repeater) - their CH. 2 (AAR  7) | Hillsboro to Stimson Mill, Mahan (Hillsboro) to Banks
Switching:          160.770 (Simplex)  - their CH. 1 (AAR 44) | Tillamook, Seghers, OE, Willsburg, Westside
This is an active line. The Rock Train is usually daily to the quarry there at the southwest leg of the wye. Stimson Lumber gets serviced in the early AM (usually anywhere between 12 and 7AM) via the Albina Flyer / Tigard Roustabout, out of Tigard Yard. You will also get the Harbor Turn in the late PM and early AM, which runs from Tigard Yard to Harbor Siding in North Portland.
