Yard Narrows

From the 4th St. Bridge, looking south, this view shows the tracks serving the Main Shops and Yard narrowing toward a final two sets of rail, which end indistinctly in the distance.  The next bridge down carries Whittier Blvd. across the Los Angeles River. 

Over these many decades hundreds and surely thousands of movie and television shows, and television commercials, have been shot under the various bridges in this area along the concretized bed of the part-time waterway. 

Closer to the river on this side, the right of way of the former Santa Fe carries freight, commuter and Amtrak traffic to and from San Diego County.  Directly across, the former Southern Pacific heads out toward Riverside County, also with freight, commuter and Amtrak traffic.
