TWO AND ONE HALF HOURS AT BEVERLY, CALIFORNIA

The UPRR main line to Las Vegas, and points east, crosses the San Gabriel River west of Beverly and circles around to the north of Rose Hills on its way to Riverside Junction. The branch line to Los Nietos yard begins here and heads south. This has been a favorite spot of mine for about fifty years and I have witnessed many changes here.

Today I spent a couple of hours there with my K20D Pentax and 300 mm lens and here are some of the images.

About THE OLD MACHINIST

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
