Birth of a Trolley Substation

Listed as Historic Cultural Monument #404 by the Los Angeles Cultural Heritage Commission as the Los Angeles Railway Huron Substation, the building was built in 1906 from a design by engineer Edward S. Cobb.  It is the second oldest surviving substation in the city which housed equipment to convert high-voltage electricity supplied by the Edison Company to the 600 volts current used by the L.A. Railways “Yellow Cars,” providing urban transportation for many years.

We welcome work as a film location, photo location, photo studio, commercials, and a limited number of corporate/private events.

I've Been Shot

The substation has lent its character to numerous film locations for feature film and television shoots, such as “Secretary”, “Must Love Dogs”, “Fast & Furious”, “Catwoman”, “The Kids Are Alright”, “Date Night”, “Heroes”, ``NCIS``, ``Major Crimes`` and many pilots.
