Also at the Terminal at Spring & Sunset and not moving but awaiting passengers
The LATL herald indicates that this is 1945 or after, but the car still has Eclipse fenders, which were being phased out during this period. 1201 has theses fenders again, and the one on the appropriate end is deployed when it runs on the Vandeventer Loop at Orange Empire. It’s been carrying full loads lately, because the last two weekends were Day out With Thomas [the Tank Engine] at the Museum. Some visitors ask about the fenders, wondering if they’re “cowcatchers”. And I advise them, “No, they’re ‘people catchers'” and “mime” a careless pedestrian yakking away on a cell phone and not watching where he’s going.
