Historic Oaklawn Bridge

The curving span of the Oaklawn Bridge in South Pasadena dates back over a century, and it is included in the National Register of Historic Places.  It served automobile traffic at least into the 1970s, but is now reserved for pedestrian and other non-motorized uses. 

To the right of what is visible here the bridge surface drops quite sharply to end at busy Fair Oaks Ave., nearby  To the left, a neighborhood of beautiful old homes extends from the western access to the bridge. 

This model of Siemens light rail vehicle was in exclusive use on the line until 2008.  Most of its cars are numbered in the 200 series; the one in view here is #246.
