Hollywood cars of the Pacific Electric Railway.
I've always been fascinated by the Pacific Electric Railway of Los Angeles, so I thought I'd stitch together some footage from various DVDs showing one of the famous Hollywood cars used on the system.
I hope this will be a bit of an advertisment for the following titles.....

To hear an audio recording of a trip on a Hollywood car put:
