Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company -- November 16, 2015

Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 13-February-1898

The Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation Company operated lines from Portland, Oregon into Washington and Idaho. Union Pacific took control in 1898, and merged it with the rest of the system in 1936.  The Oregon Short line was a UP subsidiary which was supposed to provide the shortest route from Oregon to Wyoming.
