Well, that would be a bummer, because I was planning to put it on my LA based staging yard...

Here's Google's image of both buildings. The District Bl building is not the original one. The one on Everett no longer gets rail service. The tracks in the image lead to General Mills which is still very active! Turned it 180 degrees to see General Mills.

BTW all the palm trees are NOT ornamental. The seeds came in on freight cars so the palms are growing like "weeds" :)

Been a couple of years since my last post. Here's the latest version of the layout plan plus a list of the industries with car types & other info. Have ordered the layout materials from Home Depot that should arrive by 12/12/18. So construction will be starting soon! No that's not the kind of bridge the LAJ uses to cross the LA river.

Cool! Looking forward to seeing some progress!
What kind of bridge will you use over the LA River?

It will look more like this one. But it may not have that many spans. Central Valley makes plate girder bridges that look like the LAJ bridge, at least close enough for gadumbment work. ~} And no there will be NO crapiti on it!
