Pacific Electric 538 at Warner Bros. in Burbank
By Ralph Cantos
Twenty years after all other 500s vanished as intact cars, Pacific Electric no. 538 awaits its next call to perform in front of movie cameras.
Here she sits on a shorty section of rail alongside a 1941 Chevrolet parked on Oak Street in Burbank around 1957. As a youngster, OERM member Gary Starre remembers seeing the 538 at this location. Little did he know at the time, that both he and the 538 would find their way to OERM years later.
