While reading through the PDF file about the VMRR, I noticed that "Three locomotives were ordered from the Johnson Foundry & Machine Works at 1119 North Main."
My search for pictures of North Main led me a few blocks further east. This is the Los Angeles Brewing Company in 1949.

I think the only building that's still standing is 1910 North Main, which e_r found about a year ago. It looks like it just needs a little TLC.

Well, it turns out this was part of the Los Angeles Brewery as well.

You can see e_r's full post about this and other brewery buildings here.
