Pacific Electric interurban no. 1363, bound for Los Angeles from Santa Ana in 1940, rolls along the single track right-of-way near the Hargraves stop. Since the baggage/express section was on the rear end, passengers had to climb aboard at the front entrance.

    I’m impressed with this photo because I don’t normally get to see many photos of the real PE “Ten” combines. I like this shot of #1363 because it’s like getting a rare glimpse of a famous movie star – like say, Clark Gable. 😀

    I have two #1363’s as scale models from Suydam. They’re great representations of the real thing.

    Runs like this rarely had many passengers, and they were often regulars who would know which end to board.

    Hargraves was a station between Santa Ana and Orange, the only significant stream crossing of the line was the Santiago Creek, and it was cross on a bridge where the PE was in Main Street. In addition, Passenger service on the line between Santa Ana and Orange was discontinued in 1930. The line was out of service from about 1931, with freight service being offered from Orange to a connection with the SP Tustin Branch. The train in the photo would be going to Santa Ana, After the service to Orange ended, many of the cars assigned to the Santa Ana Line had destination signs that still showed SANTA ANA-ORANGE.
