Pictures 45 and 46.

Some of the “other” 450-series cars.  In the upper picture, Perley Thomas car 456 (originally 952) and ex-Melbourne car 454 pass along the Riverfront line in July 1990.  In the lower picture, car 459 loads passengers at the French market terminal, at Esplanade Ave., on March 20, 2005.  Cars 457-463 were built at Carrollton Station Shops in the late 1990s to re-equip the Riverfront line when it was converted from standard gauge to wide gauge, while cars 450-456 were withdrawn from service at that time. — Photos by author Friedman
