A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley
It was three years ago, in April 2015, that I wrote about the former Pirtle power transfer station on the old Oregon Electric Railway. Last week I looked at it again and, no surprise, it and the graffiti are still there.
Pity the poor people who do not live in railroad towns. They miss the fun of sitting at a crossing and watching a freight rumble past.
When you’re riding your bike around town on a sunny afternoon, you have the chance to stop and take a closer look anytime you see something, well, not exactly spellbinding, but unusual anyway.
