The Oregon Electric Railway Historical Society has had a newsletter over much of its long history although with different names and editors. This archive of previous issues provides a wealth of interesting reading of the society's history and electric transit in the Pacific Northwest.

Richard Thompson was editor of The Northwest Electric Railway Review for some 20-years from 1973 to 1993. Richard is digitizing some of the issues he created back then including adding color where he can. Below is the 1988 year of issues. Keep watching as we add more issues.
