The Sierra Vista Line was a route of the Pacific Electric Railway from 1895 to 1950, first in the Northern District and later the Southern District. [1][2]

Route[edit]

It ran from Downtown Los Angeles to the Sierra Vista Junction, at the corner of Huntington Drive and Main Street in the El Sereno community of Eastside Los Angeles.

It was part of the Northern District from 1895 to 1938. From 1938 until its demise in 1950, it was multiplexed with the Southern District Watts Line
