Old and New Rails

In this mid-2005 view work was well underway on the southern extension to SW Gibbs St.   Old rails still remained, but not for too much longer.  A Southern Pacific freight branch long gone passed through here, and that right of way was later used by the Willamette Shore tourist trolley before it truncated its route a bit.  Streetcar expansion beyond Gibbs would erase this bit of history.
