It started in 1922 then became wholely by Santa Fe in '72. It is located in a 2 x 5 square area in the cities of Vernon & Commerce CA (previously city nof LA) & operates on about 65 miles of track. Before the big '96 mergers it interchanged w/ Santa Fe, SP & UP and before '64, Pacific Electric. It has 3 yards (A, B & C) w/ industries located on 22 "Leads". Have alot of pix of the steam & diesel ALCOs & ex Santa F CF7s plus LAJ Switching Maps & aerials, etc, of the Leads. If anyone is interested in seeing any of these, let me know & will post them on this site. Even if you might not be interested in modeling the LAJ, you should get some good ideas for your switching operations. less
Where would someone buy copies of switchlists from prototype railroads? I have some CN Car Control Manuals describing sidings and how cars should be switched, etc. I'd love to see the paperwork that it generates as examples to incorporate into my layout's operation.
Hello Trainlifers I need some advice. My wife and I are
building two HO scale modules and want the theme to be rural America. I would
like ideas on making wheat fields .
I'm getting back into laser cutting some low-relief industrial buildings. Also reviving my interest in 3-D printing.

Well! Looks like Trainlife is getting it's much needed 'make over'! Looking forward to it! Will be glad to see the magazines back up... and while I have had to kiss my photos goodbye forever I'm glad the site is now actively being upgraded!
