Welcome to the world’s leading visual history online archive for the Pacific Electric and Los Angeles Railways

The Pacific Electric Railway Historical Society (PERyHS) is a non-profit association dedicated to the preservation of the memory of the Pacific Electric Railway.

The goals of the PERyHS are: to preserve and maintain historical documents, visual images, oral histories, and historical studies; to make these materials available to the general public via publications (monographs), presentations and displays to non-profit groups and organizations and to assist other non-profit organizations in their efforts to preserve the legacy of the Pacific Electric Railway.

Donate today to help support us – 100% of all donations go directly to archiving and preservation efforts. This is an entirely volunteer operation.
