Tom Radestam December 5, 2012 Reply I was looking for cars that were originally owned by the SP Red Electric Line in Portland, OR. According to a textbook, by Dill and Grande, #1255 was rebuilt from SP Red Electric #503, which wrecked near Bertha Station, in 1920. This was the worst wreck in Oregon inter-urban history. Bob Davis December 5, 2012 Reply This may have been a troop train coming back from San Bernardino during World War II, although the headlights do not have the “blackout” hoods. According to “From Railway to Freeway”, even though regular passenger service to San Bernardino ended in 1941, special trains went to what became Norton Air Force Base. There’s even a photo with a four-car train at the San Berdoo PE station. Leave a Comment Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
