Pacific Electric Magazine cover for December 10, 1930
Pacific Electric Magazine Volume 15, Number 7 from December 10, 1930 depicts a dream perhaps many kids had back in the 1930’s; Santa driving a PE trolley whilst being pulled by reindeer across the skies of downtown Los Angeles. Don’t know why the trolley pole is in the upright position while flying over City Hall, but Santa knows best!

The extended pole allows them to latch on to 3 point 1 Gigawatts before hitting 88 miles per hour. You didn’t think Santa could get all that work done in one night without the aid of a time machine did you?
