    Can we confirm location…seems more like Verdugo Rd. crossing?

    Al I am sure it is the Verdugo crossing. I drive by there all the time. Also if you look closely you can make out the street sign, right next to the semaphore, it says “Verdugo”.

    Thanks Victor, you’re dead right. Viewing through small screen and thought that’s what it read. Wanted confimation, got it. Lived near here and was pretty familiar looking.
