April 8, 1961: Sunset at Fairbanks Yard
On April 8, 1961, the sun was setting not only over Fairbanks Yard, but for the last time on the Long Beach line. A few rail cars still on the line were completing the remaining scheduled runs, however these cars are dark as their useful lives had come to an end. The reflection on the
roofs of multiple new buses can be seen parked beside the shop — buses ready to start the replacement service the following morning.
