    This was fairly unusual–5050s were normally on the Pasadena Short Line, and Monrovia-Glendora was usually served by 732-749 class cars. With the 732s, my brother and I could sit up front on what might be called the “railfan seat” and watch the motorman when we rode from Monrovia to San Marino. On the rare occasion that a 5050 was on our line, we were annoyed because the seat had been replaced with a tool box with a sloping lid–no place to sit up front. Note the “Enter Center” sign indicating two-man operation. For the record, July 7 was a Saturday in 1951.
