The Oregon Electric Railway was an interurban railroad line that linked Portland, Oregon, to Eugene, Oregon. Service from Portland to Salem, Oregon, began in 1907.
Jim Hill's Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway purchased the system in 1910, and extended service to Eugene in 1912. Regular passenger service along the Willamette Valley ended in June 30, 1933, though freight operations continued and the railway survived into the 1990s (ultimately as a Burlington Northern feeder). Operation as an electric railroad ended July 10, 1945.
