Just east of there where the Portland Traction Boring line crossed over the SP mainline with the SP4449.

Great painting, and interesting choice of location, about 15 minutes from my house! I was fortunate to see a train on this line one evening when I was a kid before they tore it out.

Now the "rest of the story" as the late Paul Harvey would say:

Oregon Pacific commissioned Jim Matuska (rrartist) to do the painting of Portland Traction 100 and train on the now abandoned Boring line bridge over the EsPee main at Willsburg Junction when the SP 4449 was heading to Sacramento. The painting is slightly modified from the original photo by Greg Brown by centering the reefer on the bridge.

Once framed the painting will be mounted on the living room wall in my home which is next to the OPR East Portland line about a mile from the location depicted in the painting.

Jim did a marvelous job on this project and thank you Greg!
