As a continuation of the post I made yesterday, here's another photo taken FORTY-SIX YEARS AGO, on September 24, 1976, of that UP Junior Old Timer's Special
on the return leg of an event where the train was spotted near the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Here the train is crossing the Santa Ana River on the western side of Riverside, CA on a landmark bridge dating back to the original construction of the S.P.L.A.& S.L. railroad. The area has become a little more urbanized in the years since this photo was taken. Metrolink's Riverside Line trains use this bridge and this is one of the few locations on the Los Angeles Subdivision that is still single track.
