Los Angeles Railway 9350 Tower Car built 1907

Tower Cars are used for construction and maintenance of the overhead power collection system used by electric railroads and streetcar companies.
The cars carried tools, reels of wire, and spare parts. Linemen worked on the overhead by the use of insulated towers built into the car.

Interesting. That guard rail would likely not be up to current standards.

Looks freshly painted. I like the pattern the overhead wires make in the bright sunshine. V
