The Los Angeles Transit Lines motorman peers through the window of V Line streetcar no. 536 (ex-LARy) during operation. The destination board reads "V / Slauson & Santa Fe."

    This car is at the V Line Terminal at Monroe & Vermont. Note Los Angeles City College in the background.

    the #536 would be one of three standards saved from the scrap yard, It was donated to the City of LA and placed on display at Travel Town in 1956. Many years later, the 536 was destroyed when a tree fell on it durind a wind storm. , Members of OERM salvaged the trucks and anything else that was usuable. Car #521 went to Sea Shore Trolley Museum , and #525 to OERM
