Pacific Electric was obviously advertising their soon-to-be-opened San Bernardino line. Of note, the Orange show is still run yearly,and unfortunately, Pacific Electric is long gone.
But a portion of the PE San Bernardino Line has been restored as the Metrolink San Bernardino Line. All it needs is electrification.
