Bob Davis September 20, 2014 Reply “Blimps” were rarely seen on the Monrovia-Glendora Line, but I remember riding one from 5th Ave. to downtown Monrovia as a boy. The next time I saw one was at Orange Empire when I was 23. It didn’t look as big as I remembered, but I had grown up and the car stayed the same size. I have read that one of the reasons why none of the original PE steel interurbans (1100s and 1200-1251) survived was that a “blimp” could hold about 25% more passengers and reduce the number of multi-car trains, saving on the number of conductors needed.
