A fleet of former Pacific Electric (now MTA) interurbans, most still wearing PE paint schemes with added MTA marks, sit patiently for the start of a new day while undergoing overnight maintenance.

    All former PE cars ran PE colors under MCL and MTA except for 1543 which got a coat of two-tone green and white.

    The RED PAINT on the ex-PE Blimps sure did not hold the big cars together, because at the end , there was little onr NO paint left on them!!

    Being stored in the salt environment at LGB, I remember alot of the “red paint” was rust in the last few years of operation.
