    This is at Whittier. Generally the PE would haul out a box car due to lack of freight.

    This is not Whittier. It is behind the depot at Monrovia. This photo was taken by my dad, William Wherry and the two ‘children’ are my brother Bill, on the left and myself to the right.
    Dad, a PE office supervisor on the Western District, knew the electrification on the North was soon to be abandoned and we spent a few Sundays in August and September 1951 riding trains and photographing those places he found to be close to him in his PE experience.
