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.
