Pacific Electric 1544 "Electra" Switcher from Pete DeBeers of Pasadena, CA.

Pete is a member of the Southern California Traction Club and used LoBoys and a Half Floor motor mount to re-power his Suydam Pacific Electric 1544 "Electra" Switcher. 
Pete used the 6' LoBoys with the snap stud mount which not only made replacing the old trucks easy, but kept the 1544 at its proper prototypical height. The motor is a Mashima 1620 with 2:1 gear tower giving the switcher a nice low speed and plenty of pulling power.
