I did some serious digging in the timetable collection last night. In addition to confirming that 833/834 were indeed Coast Line (Ventura Subdivision) freights, I discovered that the LA-Yuma trains that Tony mentioned are actually in a lower number series. They are 814, 816 818 and 820, and are eastbound only, Indio to Yuma. My reference is Los Angeles Division Timetable #203, 1-9-55.Shawn, please see pages 70, 71 in Signor's _Beaumont Hill_ book. It does depend on era.
