The public is invited to ride, photograph or just view the Pacific Electric cars like the 717 during Pacific Electric Weekend June 15 and 17. The restored LA-area trolley cars once traversed a 1,000-mile interurban electric railway system, the largest in America. 

Bring Dad to Pacific Electric Weekend, June 15 and 16, at  
at Orange Empire Railway Museum

A shared love of trains brings out a unique bond between a father and his children. That's why the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, CA will be rolling out the Big Red Cars for Pacific Electric Weekend on June 15 and June 16. Bring Dad on Sunday and enjoy a Father's Day Barbecue that will top off this family celebration of Southern California rail history.
 
There will be a full parade and display of the railway heritage museum's vintage collection of Pacific Electric Railway Company cars. The public is invited all day to ride, photograph and view the restored LA-area trolley cars that once traversed a 1,000-mile interurban electric railway system, the largest in America.
 
Also on display at the museum Town Hall will be a wonderfully detailed HO model trolley layout presented by the Southern California Traction Club.
