Small companies undertook much of the railway construction in western Oregon, hoping to profit by hauling Willamette Valley passengers and agricultural products, and by providing an outlet for logging operations in the foothills and mountains. Today, although the region's rural feeder tracks may host only a few trains each week, they remain an economic lifeline for a number of businesses. Often endangered, these evolving routes are taken out of service, sold or leased to new owners, and sometimes abandoned. Originally published in 1994 and now updated with new content and additional images, Backwoods Railroads is a unique and engaging photojournalistic account of contemporary branchline and shortline railroad operations in western Oregon.
