San Diego Electric Railway
#414 headed west bound on Broadway at 5th on its way to Union Depot. The pantograph platforms were never removed from these cars with the exception of car #405, which was involved in the worst accident in SDERY history. A head-on collision in the fog on the Mission Beach-La Jolla line where one operator ran by a signal he did not see and died as a result of injuries several days later. No passengers were more than slightly hurt.  The pantograph platform was on the damaged end and was removed in the re-building.
