Pacific Electric Trailer

A truck trailer lettered for Pacific Electric is pictured here in an undated, unidentified location. Except for the round P.E. logo in the upper left area of the trailer, it seems to be identical to the Southern Pacific and the Northwestern Pacific truck trailers. The Northwestern Pacific was also a SP subsidiary.

    Would this trailer have had a small side door on the opposite face? And who has done the best study of the early Espee related trailers?

    Al, unfortunately I only found a file of this side of the trailer. Maybe someone will have a photo of the other side that we cam post here.
    This subject may have been covered in Trainline Magazine, the official magazine of the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society.
    Try searching their site for the subject on trailers here:

    I found it referenced as issue 107, about 4-5 pages. I think RMC might have done one too.
