Rail Passenger Service History of Pacific Electric Railway by Randolph Karr

From the Edward Langer Collection comes this fascinating bit of history as written by the General Attorney of Southern Pacific Transportation Company, Randolph Karr, in 1973. Mr. Karr served for 34 years with both the SP and Pacific Electric, and his father Frank Karr served 42 years with PE, retiring in 1944 as Vice President and Chief Counsel of Pacific Electric.

This historic document details many facts of the PE’s history and demise through the eyes of those who were in its management, so it serves as a unique look into the inner workings of his beloved organization.
