The guy in the classification yard

Robert Simpson <riverob@...>

Taylor Yard was SP's primary yard in Los Angeles. Colton had the neaby
Mount Slover where limestone was (is?) mined.

I looked in the archives, but could not find the link to the photo
showing the hump & riders and hill in the background. Can someone
please provide?

Great series of pictures. The photo that looks down on the ladder
shows that the location is definitely SP's Taylor Yard, and that
overpass should be what became today's Pepper Avenue bridge, or a
railroad structure just ahead of it. That little mountain in the
distance today was just about been quarried out of existence when I
last saw it in the mid-1990s.

Just a BIG handle to throw the switch.
