Review of Pacific Electric Vol 3 - Northern District - Transit Gloria Mundi - Catenary Video Productions

 4 of 5 (2)
Justifiably revered as the world"s greatest interurban, the Pacific Electric"s vast empire has required three video volumes to cover it in detail. Volume Three features the Northern District, plus Special New Year"s Day trains and RPO/ Box Motor operations.

pe vol. 3The seven lines which provided the District"s passenger services (Watts-Sierra Vista, Alhambra-Temple City, two Pasadena Lines, Sierra Madre, Monrovia-Glendora and San Bernardino Lines) are all represented in this mostly color odyssey. Revisit PE"s largest and busiest district and savor the sights and sounds of the big red tens, elevens, twelve hundreds and RPO / boxmotors burnishing over one hundred miles of electrified trackage in the busy decade of the 1940s.
