Here is a little information on the O.R. & N. from Wikipediea:The Oregon Railroad and Navigation Company (OR&N) was a railroad that operated a rail network of 1,143 miles (1,839km) of track running east from Portland, Oregon, United States to northEastern Oregon, northEastern Washington, and northern Idaho. The railroad operated from 1896 as a consolidation of several smaller railroads.
OR&N was initially operated as an independent carrier, but Union Pacific (UP) purchased a majority stake of the line in 1898. The line became a subsidiary of UP titled the Oregon–Washington Railroad and Navigation Company in 1910. In 1936, Union Pacific formally absorbed the system, which became UP's gateway to the Pacific Northwest.

Thanks to the nice collector who informed me that this is actually considered a signal green color rather than blue. It still looks like a very pretty blue, but he said that all of the true collectors already know what colorthis is and that blue globes were usually cobalt.
