Freight Below

East of the Southern Pacific tracks, a short freight spur serves the local newspaper plant.  Freight cars block the single track in this view.  An old Southern Pacific branch line, formerly California Central Railroad, continued from Folsom through this area and then into center city along R St.  Vestiges of disused and orphan rails are still in evidence on the blocks behind the camera. 

The Gold Line passes overhead, on its massive structure.
