Pacific Electric Railway 1947-49

The Santa Monica Airline was a freight route which ran along Exposition Blvd near the Coliseum and the present I-10 to Santa Monica. Its franchise required at least one passenger car per day both ways. I used to ride it to West L.A. from USC football games at the Coliseum.  I asked the crew to pose for this shot when we stopped for the derail.  A tinted version is displayed next.
