Red Car

For sixty years, the Los Angeles area was served by a vast network of electric railway lines operated by the Pacific Electric Railway. Affectionately known as “Red Cars”, the Pacific Electric’s trolleys and interurban cars blanketed the Los Angeles area on more than 1000 miles of rail lines. The last remnant of the system was abandoned in 1961. Forty-two years later, a small piece of the system has been resurrected in San Pedro, as the Port of Los Angeles Waterfront Red Car Line.

YAY! This marks the 100th post for san pedro daily photo!


  1. I'm so glad that San Pedro is saving these! It gives such a cozy feeling to the town. Lovely photo too!

  2. Congratulations on your milestone.


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
