6 Boxcars from 3 Oregon Railroads -- Ed Zarfoss
Author: MartyBernard

1. Oregon, California & Eastern Railway, Co. Boxcar OCE 3466. The OC&E was a 64-mile rail line between Klamath Falls and Bly in the U.S. state of Oregon. (Wikipedia)

2. Oregon Pacific & Eastern Railway Boxcar OP&E 1043.  The OP&E is an Oregon-based short line railroad that began near Eugene as the Oregon and Southeastern Railroad (O&SE) in 1904. O&SE's line ran 18 miles along the Row River between the towns of Cottage Grove and Disston.  The last of its track was closed and scrapped in 1994 and became a Rails to Trails.  (Wikipedia)  The guess is this was a SP&S car.

3. Oregon & Northwestern Railroad 50 ft. Boxcar ONW 5048 in Rivers, Manatoba in May 1984. The Oregon and Northwestern Railroad is a defunct railroad in eastern Oregon in the United States. It ran 50.2 miles from Hines north to Seneca, which is on the edge of the Malheur National Forest, over a total of 19 trestles.  (Wikipedia)

I don't know, might require some in depth research, like about 1 paint layer down!
