Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

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.

I have always like the Pacific Electric Railway When I was growing up I remember seeing the big red cars on what was left of the Santa Ana Line and of course the Long Beach Line.
Although those lines weren't covered in this volume, the subject(the Northern District) was covered in great detail. I was very impressed with the old movie clips of the big red cars as well as the backgound organ music and sound of the cars themselves. Trasit Gloria Mundi and Catenary Video Productions have done not just a good job but a FANTASTIC job on this one and I for one cannot wait until the other two volumes come back in stock so I can enjoy them as well If they're as good as this one was, the others should be just as outstanding in pictures and subject matter.
