TRACTION AROUND NORTH
Pacific Electric #538 is
the only complete surviving PE "Five" series medium interurban car.
Built by St. Louis in 1909, it ran on PE until 1937 when it was acquired
by Warner Brothers movie studios for use as a prop. The Orange Empire
Railway Museum in Perris, California acquired the car in 1959.
