    Although this is a black & white photo, this looks like an image of a valley seven interurban without the burgundy, ivory and red livery. It looks like it has a single color livery.

      Right about the color. Wrong about the Valley sevens Whether any Valley sevens rolled with
      the original paint scheme, I do not know but I doubt it. Valley sevens had the larger roof destination sign. This car is an original.

    This is the layover track at the Monte Sano substation on the Glendale – Burbank line. The car is marked up for the Subway Terminal. Edendale was on the way to LA and Whitmore Ave. was the main stop.

    This is the standard PE paint job from the 1920’s to 1938-41. 716 did not become a Valley Seven, but did get modernized along with the other Hollywood cars around 1940. Around 1950, it became 5166, and it lasted in service until the Watts Local line was abandoned in 1959. It is currently stored in Barn 7 at Orange Empire.

    Nice to know that 716/5166 is a survivor at OERM with so many vintage PE equipment having been destroyed during the 1950s.
