After the Pacific Electric modernized the former Southern Pacific interurban cars, the PE chose to use them over the older 1200-class units. The "blimps" held one-third more passengers and required less crew. Here, a three-car "Catalina Special" clears the Dolores stop just south of Dominguez Junction.
