Last wooden passenger cars (for passenger service) were removed from 
service in 1933. Some remained on the property until 1934 in addition 
to some in MofW service. The cars were generally destroyed by burning 
rather than dismantling, and I show one photo of them dismantling one 
of the last of the wooden cars on April 3, 1934, I also have a photo of 
them burning one which was labeled as "the last wooden passenger car 
being destroyed" about the same time.
