Switch Job on LAJ Connector
Title:  Switch Job on LAJ Connector
Description:  BNSF's fleet of rebuilt GP35us (and GP30us) are all in their mid to late 40s now. #2509 is on the garbarge strewn Citcom Spur in Commerce. There is often a set of Blue Bonnet GEEPS here. The track actually connects to a number of Los Angeles Junction lines, including their yard off of Bandini, but I have personally never seen it used for anything rather than locomotive storage. This was taken from 26th Street, and moment before I took it #2509 had roared to life. She was origianlly deliverd to the ATSF in March of 1964 as #1309. She was rebuilt February 1984, and wore Kodachrome SPSF paint in 1985. Shot on Fujichrome Provia 100F.
