    PE 5132 is eastbound (technically inbound, note the front trolley pole is locked down). The streetcar is at Hollywood Park station, located about one-half mile west of North Hollywood station and depot. The streetcar has just transitioned from the single-track section along Chandler Boulevard and is entering the double-track section.

    This was shortly before the electric railway service was abandoned. What was probably the last passenger train through here was an excursion sponsored by what was then Orange Empire Trolley Museum in Oct. 1968. We had a photo stop near this location.
