Description

A trip to Seal Beach would not be complete without a visit to the Red Car Museum on the old Pacific Electric Right of Way. Car No. 1734. This rare Pacific Electric tower car built in 1925 now serves as the museum headquarters. It was once a roving machine shop sent out to troubleshoot problems along the 40-mile Pacific Electric LA-Newport Line. A center tower was used for repairs and maintenance on the overhead lines. It operated for almost 50 years until 1950. The Red Car in Seal Beach is not a large museum by any means. Nevertheless, it is ranked as one of the locals favorite Saturday afternoon haunts.
