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.
