The abandoned LA subway

The Pacific Electric 'Red Car' and the Los Angeles Railway 'Yellow Car' lines were LA's original railway and the ancestor of today's Metro Rail, operating from the end of the 19th century till the 1960's.

The Subway terminal building in downtown Los Angeles was built in 1925 as a terminus for the Hollywood Subway branch of the Red Car. The building ceased operation in 1955 when the Subway closed due to low ridership. The trucks were removed and the tunnels were sealed up. Years later, the terminal building was turned into luxury apartments.

Last year, blogger Alissa Walker took a tour of an abandoned part of the subway, starting from the terminal building, showing us what remains from LA's original subway.
