Santa Fe Railway
Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe (ATSF) ... Pre-BNSF
Since these photographs were for the most part taken by me in the 1970's and 1980's, it stands to reason that a lot of the map locations shown for where they were taken are markedly different today. Tracks may have been removed, re-aligned or replaced by urban passenger lines such as MetroLink. It might be interesting to compare locations with how they look today.
Looking back, I sure wish I'd been more diligent about photographing the railroads before they were torn up.
Lake Elsinore Branch
One afternoon in 1984, I took some shots of the Elsinore, California branch, which ran south from Corona. At Arcilla, a washout had sent a siding into the ditch, and I thought the bent switch rails looked interesting. Also took some pics along the line south of that point, along Temescal Canyon Road to Alberhill. I finished up the day with a shot of the old Elsinore depot, which is now (I think) the home of the Elsinore Chamber of Commerce.
