455 Passes 407 Just South of Compton Station
From photographer Stephen Dudley:
Train just south of the Compton station and clear of the crossing. Stopped for photos. Being passed by a northbound train.
On 6-30-1957 I was on a charter with 5 blimps that went from LA to San Pedro, Catalina Terminal and Long Beach. I’ve described the pictures as they attached to this email – obviously their sequence follows the order of the trip. All passengers were in the lead car. This was the first 5 car train in a long time and perhaps the last. Running through downtown Long Beach was an unusual sight.
