    He saw many changes in his time. I bet he could tell a story or two about life in Los Angeles and about working on the Pacific Electric.

    Men like Mr. Shuster were the real foundations on which Los Angeles grew over the years. Good to have him remembered and honored.

    I can hardly make out the girder rail on the right (of the photo). And I don’t see any grooves next to the rails for the wheel flanges to fall through.
