SE Water
OMSI/SE Water Station is located just beyond the east end of the Tilikum Crossing that trains use to cross the Willamette River. The station has two tracks that run along the sides of the busway that leads to the Tilikum Crossing, the station has two 'island' platforms, these are shared with buses and run between SE Water Avenue and SE 2nd Place. SE 2nd Place is not a through street with only bicycles and pedestrians allowed to cross the tracks at this end of the station. The platforms each have 3 combined solar panel/shelter structures. On the outside of the light rail tracks (seperated by a fence) are bike lanes and sidewalk leading up to the Tilikum Crossing multi-use paths.

The Portland A and B-Loop Streetcars curve north off the Light Rail tracks just beyond the west end of the station and stop at SE Water/OMSI just north of the station, just east and parallel to the northern half of SE 2nd Place that is split into two by the station. The streetcar station has an island platform with it's usual design of one shelter for passengers riding in each direction. The streetcars then follow their own private ROW, over the Union Pacific Railroad Line before resuming on street running north along SE Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

Just east of the station is the Oregon Rail Heritage Center, this railroad museum houses a variety of historic cars, some visible from the station.
