Acquired by Portland Electric Power Company (1924). The Portland Railway, Light and Power Company was a railway company and electric power utility in Portland. United States, from 1906 until 1924.A series of mergers of various transportation companies in 19051906. Culminating in the merger of the Portland Railway Company; Oregon Water, Power and Railway Company; and the Portland General Electric Company.
On June 28, 1906, established the Portland Railway, Light and Power Company (PRL&P). Nearly 200 miles of track and 375 urban and interurban. Streetcars were thereupon consolidated under a single company. Upon its formation, PRL&P became the only company to operate streetcars.Within Portland city limits; it also continued to sell electric power. The name, Portland General Electric. (PGE), remained in use as a division of PRL&P and, after subsequent reorganizations in 1930 and 1940. Eventually PGE became once again fully independent as a power utility company, making PGE in some ways both an ancestor and a descendant of PRL&P. The company's interurban lines used standard-gauge.
Track, with the exception of the line to Vancouver, Washington. While most of its urban (or "city") lines were narrow-gauge, specifically 3 ft 6 in (1067 mm) gauge.A few lines in the southeast part of the city were standard-gauge. Converted from narrow gauge in December 1908 for efficiency, so that they could operate out of PRL&P's Sellwood carbarn.
Which was closer to the area those lines served but was only equipped for standard-gauge operation. Having received 43 franchises from the city of Portland, mostly in the form of land grants. It was a monopoly, and liable to anti-trust action under the Sherman Act. The company only installed safety devices (such as pedestrian bumpers) on its streetcars after extreme public pressure.While PRL&P installed many public streetlights, the city council complained about the power rates charged to the city.
