The upper picture here shows car 964 just after it has completed its upbound run and discharged its last passengers. The car is stopped on the curve, with the upbound automobile roadway glimpsed behind the car. This picture is undated, but the automobile suggests an early 1950s date.
The second picture, probably from the late 1940s, shows car 961, just a bit forward of the location of 964 in the first picture. The track glimpsed across the bottom of the picture is the downbound track. — D. R. Toye, S. J., Kenner Train Shop (Chris Rodriguez) collection, courtesy of Mike Palmieri
The third and fourth pictures, undated but from the same era, show cars 960 and 946 on the upbound track, approaching the switch connecting to the downbound track. In the fourth picture, car 964 has already changed ends and pulled forward to the point from which passengers are loaded for the next trip downbound. — Collection of Earl Hampton (fourth picture)
