    The guy standing on some sort of concrete block (on the left of the photo) is getting an awesome view of this four-unit train as it rolls by. The good ol’ days of train watching is gone forever.

    Sept 26–that would be the right “time frame” for an LA County Fair extra. The concrete block is probably part of an orange grove irrigation system. This right of way is now part of the Metrolink San Bernardino Line which uses a combination of PE SP and Santa Fe routes to run more trains between San Bernardino and LA than PE ever dreamed of.
