Pacific Electric's 1914 training film
This is a reprint of a training film made by Pacific Electric Railway in 1914. This company, which billed itself as the "largest electric railway in the world"; for a time, operated the famous "Red Cars" in the Los Angeles area. This film captures a bit of the intersection of the young silent film industry in Hollywood along with the rail industry since it was created at a time when, for example, Charlie Chaplin and Cecil B. DeMille were early in their careers.
