    3165 was the very last street car delivered to LA. Its preserved in MTA green at Orange Empire Railway Museum.

    And 3165 was never an LARy car; it was the last of 40 bought by LATL in 1948 (to the amazement of many transit observers who couldn’t imagine a National City Lines company buying streetcars). The only all-electric PCC in LARy colors is “tribute car” 1052, an ex-Philadelphia unit in the San Francisco Muni “F” line fleet.
