SP Railroad West Colton Yard at Pepper Avenue

SP Railroad engines at West Colton from Pepper Avenue bridge

At the east end of West Colton Yard is the Pepper Avenue bridge. This was a favorite place for railfans as there was generally quite a bit of action as trains came into and out of the yard plus plenty of power moves. Engines 6808, 8361, 9253, 8387, 7669, 6731 move east and will then back into one of the departure tracks.
