When I was a kid, I used to ride similar buses when I visited my grandparents in Portland, OR.

The Southern Pacific Red Line had run within two miles of where I grew up, but it was gone by then. Prolly a victim of the conspiracy.

Despite its short history, among West Coast interurbans it was unique, and it was considered the finest such system in the Pacific Northwest. It was the only major electric interurban railroad converted from steam to electric passenger use. It was also one of few systems using all-steel equipment, and one of the largest 1500-volt systems in the country.
