    This image was made at the east end of Vineyard junction. the switch points on the tracks in the foreground determine whether the trains will take the Venice Short Line or arrive in Venice via Beverly Hills and Santa Monica line. The bridge above the tracks is the West Blvd. bridge, a location where many great views of Vineyard Junction were made over the years.

    The car’s for this route originate at Hill Street Station. They follow the W. 16th Street Line and private way to Vineyard. (Now, read in the previous comment here.) [The whole East-West versus North-South always confuses me here and makes the shadows in the photos a challenge to look at.] Continuing through Vineyard past the substation and on to Sherman Junction. (Straight beyond would lie the West Hollywood [nee Sherman] Carhouse and Shop Complex and then the Santa Monica Boulevard route.) Here at the junction, a cut-off was made heading to Beverly Hills where the route would curve on Burton Way and then rejoin the Hollywood-Venice Line along Santa Monica Blvd. at Beverly Hills Station. In a certain era, Dash signs would include the listing Carthay Center, a once celebrated part of local history.
