Bill Everett Model Collection

Bill Everett spent a lifetime collecting traction ephemera: tickets, transfers, passes, tokens and motorman, conductor uniform pins, etc. The list goes on and on. Beginning in 1951, Bill constructed O-scale traction cars representing every Pacific Electric (PE) and Los Angeles Railway (LARy) model from the last years of the 1800s through the MTA rail cars of today. He built these cars working from original construction plans, photographs and books to assure a perfectly prototypical model. In the past 50 years, Bill scratch-built over 1,000 models representing streetcars and interurban cars from all over the United States. Bill gifted one of each of the PE and LARy cars to LARHF. His last gift to LARHF consisted of 72 models representing traction cars throughout the western United States.
