There was also a flat work car on the alpine division


According to the text:

This photo depicts Pacific Electric flat motor 1520 on the Mt. Lowe line's Alpine Division.

This car was built by Pacific Electric in 1914,
using Brill trucks from a Los Angeles Traction streetcar (3-foot, 6-inch gauge),
to carry freight, in this instance hay for Herbert the mule,
who powered open cars for the "One Man and a Mule" railway at top of the line.

The flat motor car was left behind after helping to dismantle the Alpine Division in 1938.
