Pictures 2-7.5 and 2-7.6.

In the upper photo, outbound West End car 869 pauses at Greenwood Cemetery, having just turned in from City Park Avenue/Metairie Road, February 25, 1947.  The track in the right front corner of the photo is the inbound track, which turns left into City Park Avenue/Metairie Road for return to Canal Street.  The crossover track across the middle foreground is used primarily by Canal-Cemeteries cars to turn back, as this is their terminal point.  The lower picture, taken the same day, shows Cemeteries car 852 starting into that crossover to begin its next inbound run to the foot of Canal Street.
