Ocean Avenue’s Red Cars
Long Beach’s Ocean Avenue in 1943 was a virtual “sea” of Red Cars; here, nos. 1028 and 1054 are ready to leave for San Pedro; behind them, no. 1038 with a blank destination sign rests behind nos. 1028 and 1054.

It’s photographic scenes like this shown in the photo (above) showing the famed PE “Tens” running through an urban setting, on girder rails, that really inspires me to want to build a dream PE layout, someday. Right now, I’m just a collector of Suydam HO brass traction models.
