Red Car Museum - Electric Rail Car

While visiting downtown Seal Beach, we followed a "Historical Point of Interest" to find a lone Pacific Electric Red Car. On the grounds of the Mary Wilson Branch Library, the Red Car Museum opens every few Saturdays. The museum is completely enclosed inside the Red Car and pictures inside are prohibited.
