The shot was taken from the pedestrian bridge that went over the
Cornfield/Links yard just north of downtown. You can see Southern Pacific's
A shed just behind the freight cars and beyond you also see Los Angeles City
Hall and the Terminal Annex Post Office next door to LAUPT.

This is a shot of an SP freight yard with Los Angeles skyline in
background, taken some time before July 23, 1956, the publication date
of the image.

For the person asking about western cars back east, note that there are
three B&O, one C&O, and one NYC in the photo, a mirror image of your
scenario. No PRRs immediately visible though.


I see a Southern car in about the middle.
Locate the back B&O wagon top and then look right three cars, two tracks
back, just below a light pole.
Too much white and too large for SP.
