Stopped at Dominguez Junction
From photographer Stephen Dudley:
Stopped just south of Dominguez Junction to let people go up the hill for a photo. A car on the Long Beach line can be seen in the right distance.
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.

There was a 5-car fan trip in March 1961. In LA and Long Beach streets it was broken into two sections, but it was coupled into a 5-car train on private right-of-way, both northbound and southbound.
