Remarks & Notes 
General Urquiza Railroad's Coronel Lynch Shops, where # 952 rests under the cool sun of a Fall morning, was home base of a small group of secondhand electric motors employed in yard and transfer duties either at Lynch Yard or at the passenger coach yard in Federico Lacroze Terminal. All the electrics were able to collect energy either through the roof poles or third-rail shoes mounted in the truck sides. Five members of the electric-motor pool, numbers 950-954 (all steeple-cabs), were acquired from the Pacific Electric in 1952. One of them, #953, was rebuilt after a wreck and became a box-cab unit.
