    PE 1057 is one of 8 passenger coaches built along with Pacific Electric’s own Tens at Jewett Car Company in 1913. The eight coaches were built for the Peninsular Railway Company, a subsidiary of the Southern Pacific Railroad. They were originally numbered 105 thru 112. 1057, in the photo above, was #111. They were identical to the Tens, and were known as “Big Pallies” – but I have no idea why.

    A decline in business caused by the depression and automobiles forced the Peninsular Railway the sell the “Big Pallies” to the PE for $300 each in 1933. They were renumbered 1050 thru 1057.

    The 1050-1057 cars were scrapped along with the Tens during the late 1940’s and early 50’s

    Does the bottom read of the sign read “Not A City Transfer (or Transit)”?

    Since Yorba Linda was way past(east of) Whittier, I’m puzzled about image, unless excursion that went to both places…any date?
