Product Information


Palm trees, beaches, and Red Cars. It doesn't get any more L.A. than this. For over half a century, from Hollywood to Hill Street, the legendary Pacific Electric defined the pulse of Los Angeles. 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. 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.

We also show 100s and Birneys in local service in all 3 PE districts. Volume 2 of "Remembering the Red Cars", with the finest quality visual transfer and digital audio, affords the PE fan an unparalleled opportunity to relive these sights and sounds.

Approximately 70 min, mostly color, full soundtrack.

Dvd-r video, no region code, can be played at any dvd player worldwide.
