    The rail line to North Hollywood was on the Van Nuys Line, which was abandoned on December 28, 1952. MTC purchased the assests in October 1, 1953. Therefore, Pacific Electric was operating these two streetcars. Since these are both 5050 class cars, the date would have to be 1951 or 1952 since these cars were operated by one-man and went into service on this line after August 13, 1950.
