Check out TriMet scanner stream

Using the right software (RealPlayer and WinAmp are known to work), metadata showing current channel and (except for the bus transmissions, which are conventional) radio # is viewable.

I do not host it, however I do manage it on behalf of Al of RANTINGS OF A FORMER TRIMET BUS DRIVER

In addition, incidents and other things heard are sometimes posted to TriMet Scanner (trimetscanner) on Twitter.

Also, if anyone's near Union Station like I am, the Amtrak PDX station ops frequency can be interesting. Head awhile back:

(Background: in order to have each trainset be overnight in Seattle regularly for maintenance, the Amtrak Cascades trainsets run on a cycle which requires people coming from Eugene at noon to switch trains in Portland. This means that there are often two northbound trains open at the same time.)

"I had to kick some people off of (the incoming train). You know, what train should I get on? The one that leaves, or the one that sits here all day?"

So Amtrak's Union Station and Yard Ops channels (160.350 and 161.040) are still analog, correct?
Just heard a bit on the station channel now. Same as it has been. They should be more active later.

And while we're at it, does any one know about the folks across the street at the postal service? http://forums.radioreference.com/federal-monitoring-forum/242992-monitoring-usps.html piqued my interest.

Lastly, some threads I've found useful:
