passed along info on The Orange Empire Railway Museum
, a repository of historic railway equipment located in Perris
, of all places.
Now, at some point I'll definitely have to make the trek out there to see their collection of Pacific Electric trolley cars, but in the meantime their website has plenty of pics and historical information on the late, much lamented Red Cars
, as well as storied train lines such as the Sante Fe and Union Pacific
The site also has a link to the Port of L.A.'s limited Red Car service
, which looks to be oriented more towards cruise line patrons rather than workaday commuters.
It's definitely worth a visit for train or Red Car geeks (and you know who you are).
