      David's lengthy description brings up possibilities of many things that might have occurred but didn't. He had some interesting thoughts. Rolling stock, though, seems to me to be a bigger problem than he suggests.

      I wonder whose cars that were available in 1953 might have fit station platform heights and length, width and third rail clearances and been capable of operation in trains long enough to be efficient?

      . . . Even CA&E's aged fleet of equipment does not seem an insurmountable problem. With so many other electric railways across the country discontinuing service in the 1950s, there were probably opportunities to pick up equipment from other properties that could have sufficed, until federal funds became available in the 1960s.

        Um, in real life Eddie Haskell became an LA cop who was shot several times in the line of duty, and Wally is an artist who had someting on display in the Louvre in Paris.  Real life is always more interesting than what some people imagine.
