Pictures 11 and 12.

Here is ex-Melbourne W-2 car 626, soon to be Riverfront 452, arriving from Gales Creek by truck.  Note that the doors on one side of the car have been closed off, resulting in the unusual combination of an asymmetric double-end car.  RTA was not completely satisfied with the Gales Creek work, and the W-2 cars were further modified at Carrollton Station for Riverfront service.  For one thing, the red color is a much darker shade than RTA wanted.  Also, the lights on the car ends were changed from those seen here.
