Some wear to dj, else very good. The Pacific Electric Railway was an interurban trolley line that at its peak operated over 1,100 miles of track with 6,000 scheduled cars daily throughout southern California. Operating from 1895 until 1961, this fast efficient mass transit system allowed for the development of the megalopolis that Los Angeles became. This is a comprehensive history of the line. Although not issued together, we are bundling this history with: Cars of Pacific Electric, Volume I/II/III. Glendale, CA: 1978/1976/1978. Three volumes. 224pp, illus; 225-448pp, illus; 449-793pp, illus. Printed wrappers. Some wear and bumping, else very good. These volumes describe and illustrate with photos and diagrams the types of cars run by Pacific Electric. They include Vol. I City & Suburban Cars; Vol. II Interurban & Deluxe Cars; and, Vol. III Combos, Locomotives & Non-Revenue Cars. Taken together the four volumes tell you as much as you ever need to know about the Pacific Electric Railway.
