The segment described in AB-12 sub3 serviced the riverside Multnomah Plywood plant until it closed. Given a large portion of the facility was built on pilings, this site was subject to marina and condo redevelopment in 1983. The ROW remains as a grassy strip of land.

Originally the Oregonian RR, covered well in "Southern Pacific in Oregon" by Austin and Dill. After SP took it over for the red electrics they drilled the Elk Rock tunnel to replace the trestle along the river. At low water some remains of the trestle still show.
