"Here's the complete story of this pioneering class of 'Red Cars'.
"Coverage includes all three sub-classes from their beginnings at the turn of the last century all the way through preservation and restoration in the the first decade of the current century. The history of two full-size operating replicas built in 2003 for the Port of Los Angeles is chronicled as well.
