Most of PE's cars met their end at the scrappers torch.  Some were sent to Brazil, some to Mexico, some were sunk in the ocean as artificial reefs, and some went to the Orange Empire Railway Museum.  Here tower car 00157 rests inside barn 2 at OERM awaiting a much needed restoration.  The car still runs and used to maintain the overhead wire around the museum grounds.  Click here to see the car as it appeared in regular service on the PE.
