    3062 had a unique arrangement of seats. Between the front and center doors on the right hand side of 3062, the seats were single resulting in an extra wide aisle. This was an effort to improve passenger circulation within the car.

    This is on Pacific Blvd. southbound in Huntington Park, J Line, near the cross street of Saturn Ave. The holiday is Christmas. My hometown, I know it well.
