They wyed the Sunset and set it back in the station to be the Coast Daylight or Vis versa. A small cleaning crew would give it a once over while it was being wyed. Automat restocked. If a car needed mechanical attention, someone from the ATSF 8th st would come out and see if it could be fixed. Otherwise, it was thrown out and replaced with one of the extra cars that was on hand in the station
