You are a brave railfan Charles! So UP now has four locos for one local? That's conservation at it's finest!

I bet the graffiti on those units happened while they were in use. Brave shot.

What an S-hole. Nice shot Charles, all your tires still on the car when you walked back.

I wouldn't consider Gardena or Torrance much of a hood, there are other places around here that are waaaay worse. (ie. Compton)

I saw that local once passing over the CA110 I don't have to chase it! great shot!

Right. Lots of L.A. and suburbs look a like third-world country. Takes the pleasure out of looking at the picture. Anyhow, why so much power for a local?

Whether it is or isn't, it still looks extremely sketch.

There are no railroads in Beverly Hills or Newport Beach, so this is the norm. I'm amazed that so many are surprised that railroads don't run through the nicer parts of town! It happens, but this is more common. Even in fairly nice neighborhoods, this amount of trash occurs along rail lines. It's the "it's somebody else's problem" phenomenon.

Ignoring the Gensets, I figured this was another shot from Bangladesh...

Personally, I really like shots taken in urban environments, as that's how I grew to love Railroads. I rarely got to see them out in the country growing up, and now that I have the choice, I still flock to cities for railfanning. Great shot.
