Remarks & Notes 
Two miles west of the Fullerton passenger station is Basta, the location for most of the Twentieth Century was the location where Union Pacific’s Anaheim Branch crossed the Santa Fe’s Third District. Today, the UP no longer crosses here, as their line now terminates here. The section that ran from Basta to Anaheim is still in place, at least here (the track on the far right), but is now a BNSF storage track, and most of the rest of the line to Anaheim is now just a strip of dirt. Meanwhile, the old Santa Fe trackage is now triple-tracked, and Metrolink train 684, heading from Los Angeles to the mouthful-station of Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo, with F125 934 shoving on the rear, is meeting BNSF train S-BWWSCO3-23A, an intermodal train that originated in Brownwood TX and is heading to Thenard, in the Los Angeles/Long Beach harbor area. Interestingly, given that the train is heading from Texas to California – both BNSF strongholds – this train has a pair of Norfolk Southern engines (ET44AC 3648 and Dash 9-40CW 9880) as power.
