Passengers board a Pacific Electric interurban at Raymer Tower tower (where it crosses the Southern Pacific mainline) north on Van Nuys Blvd. on the San Fernando Branch.

    Looking north on Van Nuys Boulevard at Raymer Tower on the San Fernando Branch where it crossed the SP Coast Main. This location is on the Western Division. In the future, the northeast quadrant will become the location of SP’s Gemco Yard.

    The GM assembly plant would later be constructed in the field to the right behind the SP tracks.
