Southbound, North of Watts
From photographer Stephen Dudley:
Photo stop on the 4-track main while headed southbound not far north of Watts – running on the local tracks and soon to be passed by a regular 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.
