735 at La Fetra in Glendora2010-06-102011-11-17https://www.pacificelectric.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/peryhs-logo-350.pngPacific Electric Railway Historical Societyhttps://www.pacificelectric.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/peryhs-logo-350.png200px200px
The La Fetra family was (and probably still is) a prominent family in the Glendora area. Among other things, they founded the Rainbird sprinker co. This stop would have been between Glendora and Azusa.
By my reckoning, the street is now Barranca Ave. The next PE stop west of here would be Citrus Ave. The new Gold Line Azusa-Citrus station (and for the next few years, terminal) will be out of sight to the left. This is as close to the Santa Fe as the PE Monrovia-Glendora line ran once it crossed at Arcadia Tower.
I’ve been to this location recently–work is now in progress to rebuild the former Santa Fe grade crossing to include two light rail tracks and one BNSF track. I could find no trace of the PE, but part of the rebuilt street will cover the long abandoned right of way.
