On this date in 1924, The Santa Ana Register announced that work was to begin within two weeks to build a spur line for delivery of materials into the Los Angeles Gas and Electric property where the power plant was being constructed. The spur line connected to the Pacific Electric tracks that ran into Seal Beach from the Long Beach peninsula along Ocean Avenue. These tracks could still be seen at First Street for years after the power plant was demolished in 1967.
