Ride the original Red (Car) Line

Ever wonder what it was like to ride in the "Red Cars" of the Pacific Electric Railway Co.? Then drive up to San Pedro some weekend. They have several refurbished cars up and running near Ports O' Call Village. . Or, they also have a number of Red Cars operating at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris. . The photo above shows a special excursion car in Huntington Beach, heading down the coast toward Newport Beach.

Update, 12/20/2022: The Red Cars are no longer operating at San Pedro. But you can still find them in Perris at what's now called the Southern California Railway Museum.
