Los Angeles Railway
3035 on Route 3 at Terminal
June 13, 1947
The 3035 was the first PCC
to leave the roster. It was being towed out-of-service to Vernon
Yard by "Big Bertha." The Santa Fe's Harbor District crosses Vernon
Ave. just west of the Vernon Yard lead. Santa Fe 260x, one of those
big ugly center-cab Baldwin 6-6-2000s, was heading north on the District.
Bertha lost her footing, untied from the 3035, and went to gather help.
3035 was left straddling the crossing. Shortly, the body contours of 3035
were adjusted to fit nicely into one
end of a DT 6-6-2000. Exit
3035. Exeunt omnes just a few years later.
