Map Oregon Washington Railroad and Navigation Company

Union Pacific System Lines of the Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation Company

DESCRIPTION: Original cyanotype map (blueprint) of Oregon, Washington, and Idaho with the rail lines and stops of the Oregon-Washington Railroad and Navigation Company ca. 1933. Shows large and small railways some of which are now abandoned.

This map could be of interest for anyone with an interest in the Rails to Trails Conservancy or the Great American Rail-Trail initiative (a coast-to-coast multi-use trail of over 3,700 miles). Portions of this map includes abandoned tracks that are incorporated into that coast-to-coast trail including the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad (C. M. St. P and P.), now a part of the Palouse to Cascades State Park Trail.

Great detail and names of mountains in the Cascades Range including Mount Rainier, Mount St. Helens, Mount Adams, and Mount Hood. Coverage extends past Seattle to Everett, Washington.

The Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company operated from 1896 after a consolidation of several smaller railroads. Union Pacific (UP) purchased a majority stake of the line in 1898. In 1910 the line became a subsidiary of UP titled the Oregon–Washington Railroad and Navigation Company. Union Pacific formally absorbed the smaller railway into its system in 1936.

Dated 1933 based on 2 other similar items purchased in the same lot, each from the Chief Engineer's Office.

In the 1930's, minor abandonments of the company's Oregon lines included the partial abandonment of the line to Homestead, as well as joint operation with the Spokane, Portland & Seattle of the Oregon Trunk railroad line from the Columbia River south to Bend.
