Pictures 75, 76, and 77.

On March 19, 2005, the author was aboard an upbound St. Charles streetcar near Napoleon Ave. when it came up behind car 29 performing sand car duty.  Note the accumulated sand near the rails.  However, the work car was too slow to keep ahead of the Perley Thomas passenger car, so the 29 pulled up at a crossover, reversed ends, and pulled to the opposite track to let the passenger car go by.  It then reversed again and returned to the upbound track, now following the St. Charles car.  These pictures were taken from the left front window of the St. Charles streetcar.
