More than 1,200 people attended an antique truck show this week at Perris’ Orange Empire Railway Museum.

The event, sponsored by the Southern California Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society, featured 137 vintage vehicles dating back nearly a century. Also on display was an assortment of military vehicles.

The event took place at the Orange Empire Railway Museum on A Street, home to one of the largest collections of railway rolling stock in the country.

“It was a great event,” said Perris Mayor Daryl Busch. “There was a lot to see and the people who came by had a great time.”
