The Dec, 2, 2007 storm, with 100 mph. winds wreaked havoc all over western Oregon and the Oregon Electric Railway Museum in Brooks, was no exception. This pole, which we had already determined was a weakling, proved us right and snapped in half, with only the trolley wire holding the broken top off the track. Whaatta mess! Luckily, the 3 Provo #1 power glass insulators remained OK!
