The Bring it Home to Oregon: The Oregon Electric #21 Campaign is rolling right along. But more help is needed if we are to bring this Oregon treasure back to its home state. This photo is when #21 was serving as #2001 in Edmonton, Alberta Canada on the Light Rail System. It helped build that system in the 1970's. This photo is taken from front of the Light Rail Cromdale shops in the late 1970's. #21 is still in the Edmonton colors, but no longer has a pantograph. We would restore it to trolley pole operation. Please help bring this home: oerhs.oregontrolley.com/donate/bring-oe21-home/

Here is Oregon Electric Railway Locomotive #22 pulling a freight train in Salem, Oregon along Front Street by Marion Square Park. We could easily replicate this scene at our museum by acquiring sister locomotive #21 and loading one of the steam tractors at Antique Powerland on a flat car and we have box car and a caboose! Help us make this dream a reality, by bringing home #21 to Oregon. OE #21 is currently located in Canada and wants to come to home to our museum!
