Pacific Electric 538 Moves to Perris
By Ralph Cantos
About 1962-63, as Pacific Electric no. 1001 and Los Angeles Railway cars 1160, 2601, and 1201 and other LARY equipment were being relocated from Travel Town, the 538 arrived about the same time to its “Forever Home” at OERM, the end of a long journey into immortality.
The 538, along with other trolleys, endured decades of outdoor storage in the unrelenting weather of Perris. She along with other cars suffered greatly but are now undercover awaiting restoration.
