A remnant of days gone by

The remains of an old railroad trestle on the Yaquina River between Newport and Toledo serve as a reminder of days gone by. Yaquina City, a bustling town a few miles up river from Newport, boasted a population of around 2,000 people in the 1890s, and the railway completed in 1884 provided access to the town for people living in the Willamette Valley. At one point, Yaquina City had more than a half-dozen saloons, fancy hotels and a variety of shops, but the town struggled, and by the 1960s, it no longer existed. (Photo by Jeremy Burke)
