Yard Rows

Although all passenger service is underground, the dedicated transit lover can find a decent location outdoors to contemplate or photograph heavy rail.  The 4th St. Bridge spans the Los Angeles River, such as it is, as well as multiple tracks for the MTA yards, and passenger and freight rail routes on either side of the river.

On this warm Saturday morning in July a number of cars were parked in outdoor storage. 

The next bridge up in this scene is for 1st St.  Late in 2009 Gold Line light rail began plying there across the river to serve Boyle Heights and East L.A.  Once upon a time PCC streetcars crossed on this structure, in an earlier electric urban rail era for the Los Angeles area.
