|A few years later, F1555 was displaced herself, being sent to Station 45 and being used as a reserve after
having been displaced by an even newer Crown in 1976. At the end of her career, F1555 was being
used as a training engine at LA County Headquarters on Eastern Ave. She was sold at auction along with
many of the departments remaining Crown apparatus in late 2008, early 2009.
