Remarks & Notes 
BNSF stacks head south again toward Badger Bridge and Terminal Island following a reverse move along the "scenic" Dominguez Channel while the massive Shell Oil refinery forms a skyline in the background. Although all the tracks you see are now PHL, at one time, the line that the train is on was Union Pacific's San Pedro Cut-Off, the bridge in the distance was Southern Pacific's Long Beach Branch, and the tracks across the channel somewhat follow the old Municipal Terminal Railway Line. The closer bridge with the pipeline sits near the ROW of the old Pacific Electric San Pedro-Long Beach Line. This location is historic East Thenard, today CP Crucero
