Description:  A Hobart switch job returns to Hobart Yard over the Union Pacific's Los Angeles River Bridge following performing a drop off at the Los Angeles Junction's A Yard. The three unit switcher had waited quite awhile for traffic to clear at Riddle. The delay caused me to get the attention of a Vernon police woman. She was actually quite friendly, just didn't undesrtand what the heck I was doing standing out there waiting.

LOW20 El Segundo Local
Title:  LOW20 El Segundo Local
Description:  This is a shot I've wanted for years, but never had the right light. Today, the LOW20 did LOW10's work at Conoco in Gardena and then ended up shoving to Vought in Hawthorne. That meant the train was facing east in the morning. Unfortunately, this normally green area (in winter I guess) was dirt dry today and I couldn't use my SLR. Had to take the shot with the phone because of the tight mesh chainlink. Still, happy to finally have it.
