Main ProgramLost Oregon Streetcars by Richard Thompson

Richard Thompson is a member of the OERHS and a published author of several streetcar/Interurban books. His latest book is Lost Oregon Streetcars. Many people know about the history of the Portland Streetcars. This book dives into the lesser known systems around Oregon, like the battery powered streetcar to Cherry Grove, not far from Gaston.  It should be a great show!
