Gallery 883: Around the World in Trams Special - Southern California Railway Museum 1981-2002

Moving on almost 14 years to 21st January 1995 and this is Los Angeles Railway no. 525 at Pinacate Station. This is one of 747 'Huntingdon Standards', so named after Henry Huntingdon who bought the Los Angeles Railway in 1898, he was a railway tycoon who later also bought the PE. The 'Huntingdon Standards ' were largely built by the St. Louis Car Co. between 1902 and 1919 and were modernised in the 1920's. They were of 'California' design with a glazed central section and open compartments at each end. The 'Huntingdon Standards' had a long life, the last examples being withdrawn in 1953.
