Pictures 10-1, 10-1.2, 10-1.4, and 10-1.6.

These Tulane cars were photographed on the outer track of the layover area at the foot of Canal Street: from top to bottom, cars 813, 800, 814, and 442.  The top three pictures were taken June 10, 1947, the bottom one in December 1945.  Car 837 on the inner track in the top two pictures is working the Cemeteries line, and 855 is probably on that line also.  There is a Car Stop sign on the light pole at the right.  The third photo neatly lines up cars 814, 906, and 829 (left to right), probably on the Tulane, Cemeteries, and West End runs, respectively.  The fourth photo features Tulane car 442 on the outer layover track.  When the Tulane cars begin their runs, they will switch to the inner track for the trip to Saratoga Street, which they will then follow up to Tulane Ave.  Note that the right front and left rear doors of the 400-class cars, such as 442 here, are sliding doors, but on the 800-class cars, they are folding doors, the same as the other doors.
