Pacific Electric Railway 1899-1953
Pacific Electric Railway was created with Henry Edwards Huntington as principal stockholder.
Pacfiic Electric was sold to Southern Pacific in 1910.
In 1911 Southern Pacific combined Pacific Electric with nearly all of the interurban railways in a four-county region of Southern California, which continued operating under the Pacific Electric name.
Its passenger operations (both rail and bus) were sold to newly-formed Metropolitan Coach Lines in 1953.
The last Pacific Electric Railway was converted to buses in 1961. Parent company Southern Pacific ended Pacific Electric's existence in 1965, folding what little millage of freight operation remained into its own operation.
