Los Angeles Transit Lines (ex-Los Angeles Railway) car no. 536 sits peacefully in its final resting place at Los Angeles Travel Town circa 1960. As noted in this post, 536 would suffer an ignoble fate when an adjacent tree would blow over during a windstorm and damage the car irreparably. It was salvaged by member of the Orange Empire Railway Museum.

Los Angeles Railway G Line streetcar no. 1008 rolls down Griffith Avenue.

From Alan Weeks:

The G line ran from 12th and Griffin to McKinley & Vernon Ave. At one time it was a through route all the way to downtown and then on to Griffin Ave and Montecito Dr.
