    I had a sense of saddness when I took this picture. Note the abandoned trolley wire lies on the ground soon after it had been cut down. These
    Trolley Buses never ran again in Los Angeles but found a new home in Mexico City.

    A mate to the wrecker (ex-MTA/RTD 147) is preserved at Orange Empire, where it’s receiving engine repairs (your local NAPA dealer doesn’t have many parts for White 6-cylinder flatheads).
