    There’s a story about how, after MTA (version 1.0) took over the LATL and Metro Coach rail remnants, a traction motor from a PE car was brought to South Park Shop for an overhaul. The foreman took one look at the greasy, grimy motor and said, “You’re not bringing that into my shop! Take it out in back and give it a good steam cleaning!”
