Pictures 540 through 542.

Perley Thomas car 969, operating on the Canal line, May 24, 2007, is turning into the Riverfront trackage at the foot of Canal Street.  The second picture shows how the car boards passengers at the Canal Street Riverfront car stop, which was designed for left-hand doors.  The Perley Thomas cars are not currently configured to use their left-hand doors, so the car stops short of the regular stopping point and loads and unloads passengers using the crosswalk.  The third picture, taken as the car pulls away from the stop heading for the French Market terminal, shows how it is impractical to use the right-hand doors once abreast of the regular stop. photos by the author
