MCL 498 in the fog

By Stephen Dudley

More from the February 16, 1958 excursion using Metropolitan Coach Lines car no. 498. Here we see the 498 stopped southbound near San Pedro before the fog had cleared.

    I love the somber mood in this particular shot. The gloomy atmosphere brought on by the fog makes this an interesting moody shot. MCL no. 498 looks terrific here.

    In the returning trip’s “northbound at West Basin” shot, the flags have been switched to the appropriate car ends. The two red markers cover both sides of the rear, but the lone white has been shifted from the inside track (here) to the outside rail (there). Was there a special rule in play, or was it by open choice?
