Bobby Troup, 80, 'Route 66' Songwriter

          By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 

               LOS ANGELES -- Bobby Troup, a musician and actor who wrote the popular song "Get Your Kicks on Route 66" and who played a neurosurgeon on the 1970's television drama 
"Emergency," died on Sunday.  He was 80.  

          Troup sketched out the song in 1946 as he drove across the country to California, where he had dreams of making it big in music. He chose to travel on Route 66. As his song says: "If you ever plan to motor West: Travel my way, take the highway that's the best. Get your kicks on Route 66!" The song became a big hit for the King Cole Trio and was also recorded by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters.  

          Besides "Route 66," Troup also wrote and performed "Daddy," "The Girl Can't Help It," "The Meaning of the Blues," "Baby, Baby, All the Time" and "Lemon Twist." He also wrote songs for Tommy Dorsey and played the band leader in the 1959 movie, "The Gene Krupa Story."  

          In the NBC television drama "Emergency," which ran from 1972 to 1977, Troup played Dr. Joe Early, a neurosurgeon who donated his time to the emergency room, where he often cared for young patients. He also was host of the ABC television show "Stars of Jazz" in 1958 and had a minor role in the 1970 movie "M*A*S*H."  

          He is survived by his wife, Julie London, the actress and singer.

"Get Your Kicks on Route 66" 
If you ever plan to motor west: 
Travel my way. Take the highway that's the best.

Get your kicks on Route 66!

It winds from Chicago to L. A. More than 2000 miles all the way.

Get your kicks on Route 66!

Now you go thru St. Looey...Joplin, Missouri and Oklahoma City is mighty pretty. You'll see Amarillo...Gallup, New Mexico: Flagstaff, Arizona: don't forget Winona, Kingman, Barstow, San Bernardino.

Won't you...get hip to this timely tip: When you make that California trip. 

Get your kicks on Route 66!

L.A. County now has a real Station 51, a recently dedicated station on the Universal lot, 3900 North Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood (Universal City). The Universal tour goes in front of the station but be prepared to take your photos quickly as the tram does not stop. Old Station 60 is now unused.

Station 51, a fictional station number, was filmed at LA County Station 127, 2049 East 223rd St. in the City of Carson, which is located South of LA International Airport off I-405. Station 127 is not a paramedic station and houses a truck and pumper. It is now known as the Robert A. Cinader Memorial Fire station who was the Executive Producer to the EMERGENCY! Series. The station was dedicated to Mr. Cinader in 1985

The first Engine 51 was an in-service 1965 1250 GPM Crown Firecoach. In Service as "Engine 60", which was stationed at Universal Studios, (LACo Station 60) and is now located at the County museum. Again, adhesive numbers (51) covered the 60 on the doors. The Crowns replacement is a 1973 Ward LaFrance Ambassador, (serial #80-811) which was donated to Universal Studios by the fire engine company. L.A. County took delivery of 47 Ward La France engines that year and Ward wanted their engine to be showcased on the TV Program and not a Crown. It showed up in Season 3's Episode, "The Old Engine". The Ward LaFrance also saw service at the Universal Studio fire station during the off-season and after the series shut down. It could be seen in movies and various TV series shot on the lot where a fire engine was required for the scene and sharp eyes could pick out the large 51 still located on front and side of the engine.

In 1987, Engine 51 (the Ward) sitting idle on Universal's back lot was pressed back into service for the Yosemite Concessions Service (YCS) at Yosemite National Park in California. At the time, the Concessions Service was operated by MCA who also owned Universal Studios, which is how a National Park came by the Engine. MCA sold the engine to YCS in 1993 for $5,000. Now, 24 years old, the engine is still a first line pumper at the park and is staffed by a paid/on call crew of 8 firefighters that have full time jobs within the Park. In keeping with its historical status, Engine 7 as it is now known, is running with license plate, YCS E51.

Squad 51 is now located at LA County's fire museum at 8365 Otis St. in South Gate, and is often seen at local musters. This is not the Squad used in the pilot. That unit was a real "in service" Squad, a 1969 D-300, 1Ton, with adhesive numbers on the doors and rear covering the actual Squad numbers. There were three Dodge models of squads used in the program and sharp eyes will note in the stock footage that sometimes there are "new" Dodge shots interspersed with the "old" Dodge, in the same episode. There was the "real" squad used in the pilot and later stock footage, an unknown style Dodge noted by the round side mirrors in the first season of the series, and a 1974, 1 ½ Ton, D-30 that was used for the completion of the series and the later TV Movies. Lettering on the doors and the rear of the Squad varied with the model of the Dodge as well. This was in keeping with the lettering specs at the time the squad was serviced and repainted if necessary (for the series) by the LACo paint shop. The word "paramedic" on the doors of the Squad, were put on after series end. No mention is ever made about getting "new" Squads in the series, unlike for the Engine. License plate number in the series <E>999007, the Squad now at the museum is running with plate number <E>727413.

The 1974 Squad has undergone a $25,000 restoration in preparation for its national tour beginning in March 2000. This includes a new paint job and restoring the lettering design to the doors and rear of the Squad to 1974 specifications. The Museum is in the process of obtaining from the California Department of Motor Vehicles the original license plate from the series for the Squad. No corporate sponsors were obtained for this massive project. Funding has been by payroll deductions of the LACo firefighters to the LACo Museum, other donations and selling Project 51 items. This "Project 51" tour, stopping in at least 13 cities all over the country beginning in March 2000, will end up in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington DC on May 16th 2000, where the Squad will be on display for 12 months. Several of the key props used in the series such as fire gear, station uniforms, medical equipment, radios, and more will stay on permanent loan at the Smithsonian. The Squad will return to the LACo Museum after the showing.

 

For Rampart Hospital, the stock footage aerial shots and long shots utilized LA County-Harbor UCLA Medical Center at 100 West Carson St. in Torrance. This is where L.A. County's paramedics actually went through their training. Fictional Rampart Hospitals phone number, 555-4667. The name for the hospital, "Rampart", came out of Jack Webb's Dragnet. Rampart Division is where Jack Webb as Sgt. Joe Friday worked out of and is a real division of the LAPD.
