LATL 1165 Farewell Fan Trip
By Ralph Cantos
Los Angeles Transit Lines car no. 1165 poses for the camera on this “Farewell to the 1100s” fan trip operated on November 7, 1954 on the S Line.
In less than a year, this nice car and more the 100 other LATL mint-condition cars will be sent to scrap at Terminal Island. The massive May 22, 1955 abandonment of car lines 5-7-8-9-F and the northern portion of the W line made over 100 H-4s and K-4s — along with the remaining Standards and 1100s surplus.
Cars 2602 and the 2501 also were sent to T.I. The body of 2501 was later saved and moved to OERM.
