Review of Pacific Electric Vol 2 - Western District - Transit Gloria Mundi - Catenary Video Productions

 5 of 5 (1)
PE considered its Western District a "suburban" service. Although the Burbank, Valley and Venice Short Lines were certainly interurban in character, their equipment generally was not. Thus this Volume of the Western District focuses on 600 (5050) class cars, which ran on most of the Lines; venerable 800s in rare shots along the Redondo Beach-Del Rey Line; 950s and 1000s, which served the western beaches; and PE"s newest cars, the thirty PCCs in the 5000 class. Also shown are 100s and Birneys in local service.

Our classic coverage of Western District operations features these types of cars, burnishing the rails down to Santa Monica, cresting the Cahuenga Pass or skimming along the Ivanhoe Hills on private right-of-way; plus downtown L.A., with the Subway and Hill Street Terminals, congested Hill Street and its tunnels, and facilities at Toluca yard, West Hollywood and Ocean Park carhouses.
