I noticed the Red Car New Boys have begun exiting towards BVS instead of Hollywood Land at the end of their show (the car enters from HTH). I am guessing that this was done to improve the running of the red car itself, as it is quite a long journey back towards HTH from Carthay that required switching the direction of the trolley wire. Now, the show no longer has to sit in front of Carthay as the line above the car is changed and can instead depart immediately. I know the show did have a substantial effect on the running of the trolley. Does anyone have any news on why this was done beyond my speculation?
The one downside is of course that at the end of the show Mickey exclaims that he is "Off to Hollywood Land"... and then takes off in the opposite direction. A minor point, but one that made me wonder as the show now only seems to operate in one direction, why not have the show start from BVS and then head into Hollywood Land to save the story. Thoughts?
For reference, old show ending:
