    Looking west down Huntington Drive. Granada Avenue crosses Huntington and the ROW just behind the gas stations on either side.

    The Eastern Division was out in San Bernardino County and the Pomona area–nowhere near San Marino. Also note the worn-out condition of the track; retaining rail service would have required (more or less) junking what you see in the photo and starting from the subgrade up. Even as a ten-year-old boy I could tell that the rails in Monrovia (further east) were ready for the scrap heap.
