February 22, 1953 was the only time that the Pacific Electric ran a PCC on the Santa Monica Airline. Fortunately for the Pacific Electric fan, there are at least two pictures of this, one at the West Hollywood freight station and one at the Santa Monica freight station.

Back in the late 1980’s, Bachmann made a PCC car and decorated it for the Pacific Electric. Unfortunately for the PE modeler, it is a single end car, and has the quality of 1980’s Bachmann. I still have a pair of these, and the shells still fit on a new, updated chassis. Tonight I decided to duplicate this historical event. I moved around the buildings.

Oh look, a flat top caboose.
Smoke’n Joe D’Amato did something really cool and I am honored. Thanks Joe.

Need to fill the cracks, and the shoulders of the road. In total So-Cal irony…refried frojoles to help set the road
The roads are made out of a No Parking sign, painted with auto primer.

I had to see what it looked like in black and white, and I like it. Can’t wait to see a Tigger Striped SW1 and a flat top caboose…
