Red Car Trolley: "Took A Ride On The Red Car"

Photo: Jonathan Vandiveer, May 19, 2012.  Got an email with photo & video from Vandiveer, "Took a ride on the Red Car today."  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris has a collection of every model of Red Car Trolley (in running condition) that operated in Los Angeles.  Vandiveer took his family for a ride on a Red Car Trolley - see the video below. 

Video: Jonathan Vandiveer, May 19, 2012.  Check out the vintage advertising inside the trolley, while riding the Big Red Car.

Plan ahead for Father's Day weekend:

Sat & Sun June 16 & 17, 2012
Perris, CA
You can ride the Red Car Trolleys and check out the Southern California Traction Club's HO scale model of the Pacific Electric Railway.
