In this picture from 1960, the KTNT-TV mobile truck can be seen parked at the Tacoma Transit bus barn, a few blocks from the Channel 11 studios: https://tacomalibrary.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/download/collection/p17061coll1/id/25813/size/full
Yes. The bus barn is still standing, in use for other businesses. The three-story brick building on the hill is Stanley Elementary where I learned my ABCs. The school building was torn down and rebuilt. The second-story floor (leading to many of the classes, nurse’s office, and principal’s office) was very creaky. I still remember the smell from the cafeteria located in the basement, near the gym and the janitor’s quarters. https://qzvx.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/02/Tac-Transit-Bus-Barn-Stanley-School.jpg
